The Author and The Books


I am 'LightHouse Dann Verner'.

I am 'Dann', just as I am.
And so it is that I am ……..

So, come, “Walk With Dann.”

A man who some say has lived many tragic lives.
The first decade of my life I had lived in thirty-two homes.
I started my 'Walks' at the age of ten.
I left Father's house at the age of twelve to join a hippie commune and learned how to be a Heroin addict.
Foster care, jails, pain, sorrow and addiction were my childhood friends.
My playgrounds were the streets.
My rocking horse a Harley Davidson.
I was rescued from certain death via an arrest.
Next was real life recovery. 'Cold turkey' style in Dorchester Federal Penitentiary.
Where, after many years, I finally found “ME”.
I still have demons but I have learned to live with them.

I started blogging in 2002. It was a release from the demons within.
The blogging led to my becoming an author.

The author led to my wanting the world to know who I was and who I achieve to become.
If my story changes but one life, then I have succeeded.

I write my books for me and my inner persona's.

For the reader,
I tell my stories.


All my books are available in paperback – Kindle & other E-platforms at:

Available also on KoBo

Damaged” is my first book.
Like me, it is raw and full of mistakes.
I have left it “unedited” as life has left me.

They're complicated, the thoughts in my head.
Confusion is easily acquired when you are 'Damaged".
I am 'Damaged'.
As the following "Walks With Dann" shall reveal.
Take heart in my words.
Absorb knowledge from my mistakes.

‘BANE’, Walks you through my middle years and three decades of marriage.
It does not contain the excitement of it’s predecessor.
It begins to show you who I was and who I was becoming.

BOON” Walks you deep into my personal life of trials and tribulations and my uniquely twisted none the norm perception of my realty.

A fictionl journey of a hippie on a Harley exploring the times.


The smell of the ocean danced on my nostrils as I walked, slipping and sliding, across the flats. My eyes darting to and fro, carefully scanning ahead for sink holes.
I should have been walking the other direction. Towards the junior high school. Towards hippie teachers trying to teach me of science, faith and nature.
I could hear the train in the distance. Pulling it’s tonnage of sugar cane around the bend to the refinery.
The tug boats crested the horizon. Their wake spewing behind them as they pushed against the mighty tanker so as to slow it’s unforgiving momentum. Lest it run ashore.
The shore. My foster home was there. High up the hill. It’s windows like two large eyes, taunting me with guilt.“Go to school“, they seemed to say.
I can’t“, my reply.

The first volume of the

Walking On Dawes Collection”


"This is a tale of a family who live their lives within the gang life. Except Little Ray. He and his family want him to break the cycle and live a normal life.

There is tragedy, laughter and most of all 'insight' within.

So come with us as we

Walk On Dawes."

Let’s show this young lady that people do care about the emotions of others.

This made me cry.
Let’s show this young lady that people do care about the emotions of others. 
The world is a dark place for people with what we have selfishly labelled as “Special Needs”. 
Everyone “needs“, we are just so self-centred we neglect to see the needs of others.
In this time where everything is debated, movies and TV shows promote sex and violence and all we ever hear about is turmoil, wars and paranoia we have forgotten to “ Stop and smell the roses.”
Hereis a bright flower surrounded by dandelions and weeds. 
Show some love people!!!!
Peace, Love and Light is becoming a rarity.

What ‘LightHouse’ is doing ….

With spring soon arriving I have been hunkered down with too much idle time on my hands.
So, I been cleaning out my writing closet. Books I began but never completed.
My books are crude, as I am.
My books are real even though they are fictional.
I have my ‘Walk With Dann Collection’ – my life – my tragedies.
I have begun my ‘Walking On Dawes Collection – Book 1 published, I Want To Be Floki“.
Currently writing Book 2 – “You Can’t See Me”  3/4 finished.
I am also writing EYE” – a smaller novel about my paranormal encounters over my lifespan.
A WALK WITH DANN” – An insider’s look at my blogs and mind.
So, now you know.
I’m not a writer, I’m a realist.
I just write.
I write my books for me – to heal.
I tell my stories for “YOU”, so hopefully my life’s tragedies and mistakes may help someone, somehow ….

Look at their faces – just look – would you let them go hungry?
