Danny Dunne was born in Hidalgo, Illinois (POP. 100) in 1945. He is the
second-best-known writer from Hidalgo. The best-known writer is Winfred Van Atta whose novel, Shock Treatment, was made into a movie.
Mr. Dunne has been employed at the same bank for the last forty-three years. He and wife continue to work to support their puppy dog in the style she’s
become accustomed to. Although he has always liked to read funny stuff, he
himself has only been writing for two years. This shows up in his work.
The highlight of Mr. Dunne’s career thus far is that he landed a column
in the local paper, where he’s published as space permits, or whenever the Amish Cook column includes less than a half dozen recipes.
