He holds an MFA in poetry from the University of California, Irvine, where he taught creative writing and rhetoric. His writing has appeared in Provincetown Arts, The Sarah Lawrence Review, The Westchester Review, and The Bennington Review. During his time at Sarah Lawrence College Dan, as a 19-year-old sophomore got involved with Larry Ray the leader of what turned out to be a dangerous cult. Dan has written about these harrowing experiences in his new memoir SLONIM WOODS 9 A stunning firsthand account of the creation of a modern cult and the costs paid by its young victims. In this second half of their two-part conversation, Daniel continues telling Rachel his story of terror and survival detailing the physical, sexual and mental abuse he and his friends suffered at the hands of Larry Ray. Throughout his difficult retelling, Rachel offers Daniel her insights pointing out the manipulative tactics Larry used and the similarities found in other abusive cults. Together they discuss the red flags people should be aware of and offer hope to those survivors on a similarly long road to healing. Before you go: Rachel examines instances where manipulative leaders flip causal relationships to increase their power and control over their unsuspecting followers.
