Dan Mariani

Dan Mariani is a native New Yorker born near the Westchester Square area of the Bronx. The author studied English at the University of Albany in New York where he focused on a broad liberal arts education. Later he went back to school and earned an advanced MBA from Adelphi University.

His many adventures have included a short stint in the Air Force as a navigator trainee, a cross-country trip from Dallas to Boulder that ended with the author sleeping in a public park nearly getting frost-bite, spelunking in freezing temperatures in an underground cave during the worst of winter and hiking the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

Dan has also been a tour guide at the NY Aquarium where he learned about Belugas while educating the public on the vanishing wetlands and their threat to fisheries and coastal habitats, and he spent 28 years in various healthcare roles both in clinical and non-clinical settings. All of these experiences have enriched this author's pen.

He currently lives on Long Island with his wife and family.

The Road to Chapultepec Park

The Road to Chapultepec Park depicts a post-apocalyptic earth ravaged by climate change. The story follows the journey of a M.I.T. climatologist who escapes a brutal prison camp in San Antonio, Texas and his courageous struggle to find sanctuary in Mexico City, Mexico a place designated safe for U.S. citizens.

It is a powerful tale of love, survival, and redemption in a world turned upside down. It is also a tale of government climate engineering gone awry and a search for meaning.
