Daryl lives in New Jersey with his wife and two children, only miles away from the town he grew up in. Most of Daryl's written work is specifically for children, originally created for his own two children as bedtime stories. Daryl is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). Daryl's writing began in college as a Theatre Arts major at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia.

Daryl says, "I see myself as a storyteller, whether it is told by song or through books. I was born to do this. I love rhythm and rhyme and I have added that to the stories that I create.
