Daryl Banner

Daryl Banner is a man of many talents and abilities. Multi-faceted and creative, he’s made his mark in an amazingly wide variety of arts and enjoyments. He’s an author, gamer, and composer. Not many writers, even the best ones, have a large curriculum vitae on IMBD. With music and story writing credits, he’s shown his value as a creative person.

Mr. Banner graduated from the University of Houston Honors College, magna cum laude, with a degrees in Theatre and Psychology. While in college, he wrote two plays that were produced with a mentorship of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lanford Wilson. Mr. Wilson also mentored Mr. Banner while writing his first novel.

During his college time he also composed, wrote, and produced a musical with the assistance of Tony Award-winning theater and musical producer Stuart Ostrow. Music is a major presence in Mr. Banner’s life. An obsessive pianist who is self-taught, he’s been remixing music for video games for over 20 years. He also a serious video game aficionado.

One of his music remixes can be heard in the major motion picture “The Spy Who Dumped Me”. As a composer, he has written many of the original soundtracks as an accompaniment to his books and series. You can hear them in “The Beautiful Dead” and in “OUTLIER”.

With music being such a major force in his life, he was inspired to quit his ten year day job and go on tour with a two-women-one-man original musical.

One of Mr. Banner’s earliest writings is Outlier: Rebellion, set in a sci-fi dystopian society where babies sleep constantly until they are two years old then they have their “final wake”. These people wake at two years old and never sleep again. They don’t dream, they don’t nap. They talk about it as if it was a legend of old. Except for seventeen year old Link. His dirty secret is that he does sleep and he always has dreams. He keeps that dirty little secret hidden from others.

The others are a gang of seven other boys, similar in age, absolutely vile and dangerous. Link wants to be accepted by them so he commits vile and dangerous acts, even when they turn his stomach and give him nightmares.

Link isn’t aware that he has someone watching him. The “Kid” sees his despicable acts and can also see that he doesn’t like what he’s doing. Even at her tender age of seven, she sees how it disturbs him. Link doesn’t see her. No one does. She has the legacy of invisibility.

Mr. Banner’s writing themes have changed as he developed his style and his audience. He is well known for and has published many books that are highly appreciated by the LGBTQ community. With steamy cover art of young, well muscled, and tattooed men in tight jeans, the eye candy captures the attention and the stories pull them in.

His initial entry into the M/M romance series is The Brazen Boys. Book one is Dorm Game. The first paragraph sets the tone for the story when the character declares that horniness is his discovery to the solution of the need for renewable energy.

The Brazen Boys is a series of nine novellas that can be read in order or are fine stand-alone M/M stories. They all have the highly popular steamy, college hunk themes.

Mr. Banner graduated college and so did his hunky guys. Another sexy series of M/M books is Boys and Toys- Season One. The lives of the four hot men of Boys and Toys are intertwined and flow throughout the four novellas. Described as a readable version of your best gay TV series- you get addicted to it, binge it love it.

Season Two of Boys and Toys brings a whole new set of four hot, steamy guys to binge on. In an interview with the Big Gay Fiction Podcast he discusses Season Two of Boys and Toys, elaborating on the characters.

Mr. Banner tells us about “Connor”, a fresh young fellow who is bright and fun and a thorough Kansas country boy who has been thrown into the big “gayville” city, ready to be consumed. Mr. Brazen describes this series as being inspired by and creating a mash-up of Sex in the City and Queer as Folk.

The M/M scene moves to Texas with Mr. Banner’s set of nine novels. Concurrent to the Boys and Toys series, he released a series called A Spruce Texas Romance. These stories bring you a buffet of cowboys, jocks, chefs, and lots of southern charm. Football Sundae is the first entry into this series.

Mr. Banner describes this series of stories as a slightly fantasized version of being gay in the south, an area of the country known for its harsh, sometimes violent homophobia. Here he gives us stories that are friendlier and idyllic and presents a world in the way things “should be”.

Mr. Banner’s stories have been included in several LGBTQ anthologies, some specifically released for PRIDE Month. Regarding all of his stories, Mr. Banner cautions you, the reader, to not love the heroes too much; their innocence might be deceiving you.
