Daniel is the son of Louis Handler – a Jewish-German refugee – and his wife Sandra Handler Day, who was a Dean at the City College of San Francisco; he has a sister who is a couple years younger. He went to Commodore Sloat Elementary, and then attended Herbert Hoover Middle School, and matriculated from Lowell High School, after which he enrolled at Wesleyan University, and graduated in 1992. The same year he received the Connecticut Student Poet Prize.
His first book ever came out in 1998, entitled “The Basic Eight”, however before its release, Daniel has stated that he was rejected more than 30 times when it comes to publishing, apparently due to sarcastic plots and the tone of the book. Nevertheless Thomas Dunne Books published the “The Basic Eight” in 1998, and his next book was “Watch Your Mouth”, which follows the story of student Joseph, who spends summer with his girlfriend Cynthia, a Jewish girl from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, published in 2000 again by Thomas Dunne Books.
Five years later out came his third book entitled “Adverbs”, which is a collection of short stories on the topic of love, as stated by Daniel. In 2012 Daniel published his fourth book “Why We Broke Up”, for which he received a Michael L. Printz honor award, and in 2014 his fifth and latest book “We Are Pirates” was published, all adding to his net worth.
However, Daniel is undoubtedly best known to the world as Lemony Snicket through his books “A Series of Unfortunate Events”; he started writing the first book in 1998, and a year later it was released under the title “A Series of Unfortunate Events: Bad Beginning”, published by Scholastic Inc.; however, after it received positive reviews and became one of the most successful books, it was re-published by Harper Collins. Since then, Handler has written and published 12 more books in the series, among them “The Reptile Room”, “The Ersatz Elevator”, “The Vile Village”, “The Carnivorous Carnival”, “The Slippery Slope”, “The Penultime Peril”, and ‘The End”, all of which have certainly increased his net worth thanks to their sales.
Apart from “Series of Unfortunate Events”, Daniel has published other books under his pen name, such as “The Composer Is Dead”, “The Lump of Coal”, and “All The Wrong Questions”, which is another series of four books, and was a prequel to “A Series of Unfortunate Events”.
Regarding his personal life, Daniel is married to his college sweetheart Lisa Brown, and the couple has a son together.
