Daniel Cohen

March 12, 1936 -

Daniel Edward Cohen (born in Chicago, Illinois) is an American non-fiction writer who has produced over one-hundred books, mainly for young audiences. After graduating in journalism from the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign in 1958, he worked as a proofreader at Time Inc. before becoming an editor for Science Digest. In 1969 he moved to upstate New York with his wife, Susan Handler Cohen, to begin a career as a freelance children’s writer.

Cohen is well known for his books about UFOs, ghosts, psychic phenomena, cryptozoology, and the occult. Though Cohen is a self-described skeptic and onetime member of CSICOP, his books on paranormal phenomena take a more light-hearted, open-minded stance. Cohen has written on numerous other topics, including sports, history, dinosaurs, nature, technology, and folklore. - wikipedia
