Dan Rix lives in Santa Barbara, California. He writes young adult science fiction thrillers, among them, The Summer It Came for Us, a mix of mystery, fantasy and science-fiction novel (January 2017). Access to the book synopsis, opinions, ratings, reviews and more about the author.

Dan Rix started writing his first novel in college while procrastinating his architecture studio work. He currently has over twelve novels for sale on Amazon.

He lives in California with his fiancée, Laura Thalassa, YA paranormal romance author, of whom he is the editor.

He loves creepy things, including books. When not writing, you can find him reading or hiking in the Santa Barbara coastal hills.

His newest book, The Summer It Came for Us, was published in January 2017. Set in the haunted woods near an abandoned physics lab in Northern California, it’s the story of five teens who encounter a mystery stranger—and more shocking—than anything they could ever imagine.


No one believes Remi’s account of the night Vincent disappeared.

How the night sky lit up like day, how they lost control of the car and crashed into a ravine, how she remembers seeing a nine-foot-tall man—and how when she woke up the next morning, the only thing left of her best friend were his footprints, fleeing off into the dark woods only to come to an end, inexplicably, in the middle of a clearing.

If the urban legends are to be believed, he’s been swallowed by an ancient, nameless evil.

And she’s next.

  1. Well written, just what is needed in terms of setting description (not to much!), interesting plot and characters, a lot of mystery and suspense as usual, unpredictable and spooky as I like it. A great book!
