Dansplaining the Novels, Defined

Dansplain Define

Dansplaining: /danˈ spleɪn ɪŋ/


Dansplaining: The explanation of Churachian writing by Dan.

Typically, the act of Dansplaining occurs between Dan and you, dear reader, in a manner that is NEVER regarded as condescending or patronizing.

(With apologies to Google Dictionary)


"To write a story about the future, you must first study the past."

─ Dan Churach


Dear Reader,

Welcome to my “Dansplaining page”. I will start by telling you what Dansplaining is NOT – it is NOT meant to give you a synopsis or overview of my novels. You can find a synopsis of each on the “The Novels” link. Dansplaining takes a whole different approach to Churachian novels… Dansplaining is where I can just sit and have a chat with you and tell you just why I'm writing what I’m writing.

So often, friends and colleagues ask me where I get ideas or what I was thinking about to come up with plots for my novels. The same friends tell me I can speak for hours giving such eloquent answers to these questions, though often times these same friends may describe my eloquent responses quite differently. That said, I thought it best to coin a new term, “Dansplaining”. Let me attempt to Dansplain my novels for you, dear reader.


Cheers –


“One glance at a book and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for 1,000 years. To read is to voyage through time.”
