Welcome to My world

Studio Image

Hi, I’m Danny Ballan. I would like to welcome you to my website where your imagination and mine are the only boundary we will admit to. 

I write fiction and nonfiction; I write music; I create online courses and I am also a podcaster. There are a few other things I will let you figure out on your own. That might sound a little arrogant, but it’s quite the contrary. I live one life and I want to do everything I want to do in this small window we all share. 

Life is worth writing for — Danny
