Historical fiction author Daniel Wyatt is Canadian, born and raised on the prairies of Saskatchewan and spent many decades in Oakville, Ontario with his wife, Bonnie. Wyatt has two adult children and a black cat, The Mick, named after his favourite ballplayer. 

His first published work was a set of first-person stories from World War II allied air force veterans called Two Wings and a Prayer by Boston Mills Press, Erin, Ontario, Canada in 1984. This was followed up in 1986 by Maximum Effort with the same publisher. In 1990, Wyatt switched to historical fiction with The Last Flight of the Arrow, a techno-thriller set during the Cold War years of the late 1950's. The Mary Jane Mission came out two years later.
