DANIEL J. MAWHINNEY
Daniel J. Mawhinney is the bestselling author of Tips on Tips, How to Succeed as a Professional Server, the accompanying Workbook, and Trainers’ Guide. He is a gifted speaker, an accomplished business owner, trainer, and business consultant. A great day for Daniel is one spent in the company of a great book. His love of learning has paved the way for success in his chosen field. He loves spending time relaxing with his wife (although 40 Day Publishing may be the one and only book he co-authors with her) and his children. Daniel lives in Oklahoma City with his wife (who has not yet kicked him out for writing run-on sentences) and son. He has one adult daughter who is trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life. His message to her is…, well, he doesn’t have one since he has just figured out where he’s going with his own. These things take time! Daniel enjoys playing with his son, volunteering at his church, and traveling. He especially loves eating the food his wife cooks for him and a great cup of coffee.
Darlene Shortridge is the bestselling author of Until Forever, Forever Blessed, Forever Loved, The Letter, The Perfect Gift and Forever Faithful.
She is a sought after speaker for women’s ministries, retreats, schools, and writer’s groups. She is often mentoring other authors online as well as through their consulting business. Darlene loves to share knowledge (sometimes a little too much) and takes joy from seeing others succeed, whether professionally or personally. 40 Day Publishing is her first co-authored book with her husband and it very well may be her last. She has nicknamed him “writing bully” and he has pridefully embraced the nickname. He in turn often reminds her to breathe, keep calm, and move along. Darlene homeschools their son and tries to positively influence their daughter who lives in a faraway land (which is exactly why their daughter lives in a faraway land). Darlene enjoys scrapbooking, volunteering at her church, and traveling. She loves to cook for her husband (who loves to eat) and entertaining friends and family.
