Daniel Di Benedetto, writing under the pen name D.D. Howard, was born and raised in Vero Beach, Florida, but is currently stationed at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, in California. He began writing in seventh grade, inspired by the Twilight Zone, and his favorite genre is magical realism, which he applies to most of his creepypastas.
Howard is currently a Corporal in the United States Marine Corps, working under the MOS 5711: Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Defense Specialist. When not at work, he can be found writing, running, or lifting at the gym.
