Daniel Easterman is the pen name used by the well known British author Denis M. MacEoin for writing his mystery, thriller, science fiction, nonfiction, and fantasy books. He was born in the year 1949 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and is a popular writer and analyst. Since the year 2014, author Easterman has published numerous essays at Gatestone Institute. The essays are based on the current events with a focus on Middle East. Easterman was also a Senior Fellow at the institute. Between 2009 and 2010, he worked as a senior editor at the Middle East Quarterly, which is a publication of the Forum of Middle East of the think tank of America. Easterman is also a fellow over there. Author Easterman has also served as a lecturer of the Islamic Studies. He has academic specializations in Babism, Shi’ism, Bahai Faith, and Shaykhism. In his works related to novelisation, Easterman uses one more pen name, that is Jonathan Aycliffe. Prior to the beginning of his writing and academic careers, author Easterman studied English Literature and Language at the Dublin University’s Trinity College. He also studied Arabic, Islamic Studies, and Persian at the Edinburgh University. Following his graduation, Easterman carried out his research work for a Ph.D degree at the King’s College in Cambridge. The Ph.D dissertation dealt with a couple of heterodox movements in the nineteenth century Shi’ism of Iran, Babism and Shaykhism. Between the years 1970 and 1980, author Easterman was involved in teaching at Islamic Civilization, Arabic to English translation, and English at the Mohammad V. University, located in Fez, Morocco. He resigned from the University soon after he commenced his employment there. He stated that the resignation was a result of disputes related to contract changes, payment, and working environment.

In 1986, Easterman became an Honorary Fellow at the Middle East and Islamic Studies Centre, Durham University. Later, Easterman assisted in the academic writing at the Newcastle University between 2005 and 2008. Author Easterman became a pro-campaigner of Israel after he visited the country for the first time in 1986. He maintains that he has hard negative feelings about the Islam religion. Since 1986, Easterman has written a total of 26 standalone novels in his novelist career. Throughout his career, author Easterman has widely published on the topics of Baha’ism as well as other controversial movements of religions. Even today, Easterman continues to write on the academic subjects. In all, he has made more than 200 contributions to journals and books. Easterman says that he has many more consuming interests such as alternative medicine. His wife, named Beth, serves as a homeopath. She works to sort out the issues related to religion’s role in maintaining a secular society; human rights, and public health. Easterman has been actively defending Salman Rushdie as well as lobbying for abolishing the blasphemy laws. The family of author Easterman lives in Newcastle. He has a collection of records of folk, opera, world music, and rock. Author Easterman’s collection also includes a video version of new wave music from France. Currently, Easterman is working on the development of his latest thriller novel and seems more content with it than anything else right now. He considers himself to be a pacifist and likes to knock off his characters bloodily, without compunction, and on a regular basis.

An initially written successful novel by Daniel Easterman is entitled ‘The Jaguar Mask’. This book was released by HarperCollins in the year 2001. The plot features the lead characters in the form of Declan Carberry, Leo, and many others. Author Easterman has set the story in the center of a jungle in America. Declan Carberry is shown as the not so handsome hero, who indulges in a plot that brings out exotica, erotica, and the suspense of Formula One. Archaeologist is sent on his next assignment, which does not appear to be an ordinary one. He goes to the archaeological location, deep inside the Mexican jungle that uncovers the centuries old Mayan city. Leo and the members of his team carefully remove each of the crumbs with high precision, just like a surgeon who performs an intricate operation. On the other hand, Declan Carberry is in France to investigate and solve a series of ritualistic serial murders. He finds that all the murders are very horrific and wonders who would have committed such brutal crimes. Declan knows that he needs to act fast as not much time is left with him. He delves into the history of Maya and Conquistadors of South America to find some clues related to the murders. In the end, the story shows a vertiginous tale of netting and snaring, modern codes and old rituals, immortality and blood-letting. All these factors make this book an interesting read.

Another popular book written by author Easterman is called as ‘The Final Judgement’. It was released in 1997 by the HarperTorch publication, after it was originally published in 1996. The story of this book starts by showing that a teenage boy gets kidnapped. His family is demanded an outrageously huge ransom from the kidnappers. In desperation, the father of the young boy decides to call his brother-in-law to help get his son back. The estranged brother-in-law, Yosef Abuhatseira appears to the perfect man to carry out this job. He is a patriot from Israel, who is a born hunter and a one man army possessing many survival skills. In spite of all these skills and qualities, Yosef is not able to prepare himself for the surprises that this rescue mission has for him. Later, it is found that the kidnapping was just a beginning. A series of murders that follow very soon make Yosef Abuhatseira realize that the killer is murdering all the Auschwitz survivors. Yosef feels the need to penetrate into the strong walls of secrecy surrounding the organization before someone else’s life is taken by it. The story brings a lot of surprises for the readers. Yosef Abuhatseira is shown going on with a nail biting adventure in this intriguing plot. Author Easterman has included some action scenes in the plot, which add to its intrigue and help make the story look even more interesting to read. Author Easterman was lauded with praise and appreciation from the critics as well as the readers. Such excellent response helped the book to become highly successful and allowed author Easterman to become even more famous as a novelist.

    I picked up “The Ninth Budha” at a library book sale several years ago and got hooked on your novels. I live in the U.S. and have had a hard time finding some of your books. Currently, I’m on vacation to the UK and have managed to find a couple of your books that I haven’t read. I’m somewhat interested in the world’s religions and have a hard time rationalizing how people have distorted those religions’ primary messages.I’m very apprehensive of what will happen during and after the next U.S. presidential elections and will be doing everything I can to make sure that a certain former president does not get elected. I just ordered “The Judas Testament” and spent 3 times more on shipping than the book itself. I’m currently reading “The Sword”. Thank you for your novels.

    Denis: Write more fiction books! I’m an Arabophile and miss your historic connections to great fiction stories!! Otherwise, tell me in 100 words how I can write like you (I am a journalist, age 75) in regards to research (my start would be Europa’s “Middle East and North Africa, but can’t afford it! I am not an academic!
