Daniel Cohen was born Daniel Edward Reba in Chicago, Illinois on March 12, 1936. He received a bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Illinois. He worked at Time magazine and Science Digest before he began writing books. His books for children and teenagers dealt with ghosts, U.F.O.s, the occult, ESP, vampires, werewolves, conspiracies, cloning, weather, and the human genome.

His only child, Theodora Cohen, was killed in the December 21, 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103.
