About Daniel Lango

I'm a civil war reenactor and educator of this era. I did eight years of research on my book. Part of my inspiration came from civil war soldiers making the ultimate sacrifice. The other came from my friends father, Mr. Hughes, an author whom passed away before completion. Eight years ago I promised myself I would finish what I started. Today, I have fulfilled that promise. Daniel Lango is my name and I'm 24 years old living with autism. Matt Hughes was Len Marchand's speechwriter and co-communications aide during his term as Minister of State for Small Business and Minister of the Environment. Hughes is the author of two published novels and a number of short stories, but his main occupation for the past twenty years has been as a writer for hire, specializing in freelance corporate and political speechwriting, annual reports and ghostwritten newspaper articles for a wide range of clients in business and politics.
