About the Author

    As a young man, at the age of 10, Dan Jammal wrote his first work of short fiction. Through the years—from high school through college—Dan continued to write in search of his voice and the words that spoke for him. Dan’s discovery into the brilliance of William Shakespeare opened his eyes, first through enacting the plays, and then through analyzing Shakespeare’s craft of language. It was some handful of years later when Dan found himself stranded in Boulder, Colorado. Through Shakespearean-style love pitfalls, his voice was finally heard within him and he began to forge the modernization of his favorite play, The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark.

    Dan Jammal was raised by parents who emigrated from Lebanon and settled in Boston with hopes of achieving the American dream. Learning his ancient culture, with its rules and obligations, and balancing that knowledge with a modern, American desire to be anything and do anything, Dan was able to gather insight from many perspectives to forge a unique understanding of the world and its people.

    Though Dan is an unpublished writer to date, Hamlet’s Story Must Be Told is being read and reviewed by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, in Stratford-Upon-Avon, for admirable mention on their global website.  He has recently completed his second book, entitled, A Plague A’ Both Your Houses. This work reflects the aftermath of Verona and the state of affairs between two destructive families, The Montague’s and the Capulet’s, and what transpires between them after the unfortunate deaths of their beloved children, Romeo and Juliet.

'O God, Horatio, what a wounded name, 

Things standing thus unknown, shall I leave behind me!

If thou didst ever hold me in thy heart,

Absent thee from felicity a while,

And in this harsh world draw thy breath in pain

To tell my story.'

 

~ Hamlet, Act V, Scene II
