About the Book

Beyond the Horizon is a true story of a middle-aged man who returns to a mountain lake where he had a unusual experience nearly 30 years earlier. While there, he takes the opportunity to reflect on his life -- looking at the difficult time he endured during the last half of the 20th Century -- and what brought him full-circle back to the lake.

For years he felt somewhat out-of-step with both his family and society, so he pledged so solve the mystery that surrounded his life. During the journey he catches up with his past -- and also has a glimpse into the future. Seeing the two he comes to a greater understanding of himself and life, clearly seeing his destiny unfold.

Reader comments:

'Beyond the Horizon is thought provoking . . . In my line of work I see many young people who haven't had the upbringing necessary to give them a solid value system -- these youth are desperately looking for something to latch on to -- and since that family unit has disintegrated, there has to be something ...'

--Mary Ann Coyne, Prosecuting Attorney

'I could feel the author's passion for a better world bleed into Beyond the Horizon ... What he has to say about society will surely give thinking people pause ... This should be required reading for every high school student in the nation.'

--Al Simon, USMC (Retired )

'The perceptions of life in Beyond the Horizon are so different -- not in ways no one else has -- but in ways that are not talked about.'

--Tina Marquez, Corporate Communications

About the Author

Daniel Coleman is a first-time book writer who wants to make a positive contribution to our world.

As a father, stepfather and grandparent, he is concerned about our society and the environment for future generations of Americans. Having taught safety programs in the public school system, he has felt the pulse of our youngest citizens and knows the difficulties of today's youth.

A veteran of the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War, he had an opportunity for international travel and came to appreciate the common threads within mankind and acknowledged the merits of peace.

Currently employed by a major automotive manufacturer, and having worked in an engineering environment for many years, he has watched technology far exceed its creators, seeing these 'scientific wonders' as solving only a small number of man's complex problems. The balance of the burden still lies on the shoulders of humanity -- setting premise for his book 'Beyond the Horizon.'

He is a graduate of Oakland College, Michigan, in the disciplines of Engineering and Business. Further studies included communications and metaphysics, giving him what he felt to be well-rounded education.

Born in Michigan, he migrated to California in 1976 and eventually relocated to Arizona in 1988 where he currently resides with his wife.

He is a member of the American Legion, and also an active member of a volunteer Emergency Response Team.

Since writing his book he has used his psychic ability to volunteer 'soft information' to local law enforcement agencies on certain unresolved cases; working in the background to bring justice to the families of the victims of violent crime.
