After a first publication in Spirou at the age of 16, Daniel Goossens accompanied his father, who was in the military, to Tahiti. There, he cooperated on the fanzine Tikirama from 1970 to 1971. Back in France, he began a collaboration with the boyscout magazine Pionniers. He had a brief appearance in Pilote, before he became one of the regular artists of the magazine Fluide Glacial in 1977. He started series such as 'L'Encyclopédie des Bébés', 'La Vie d'Einstein', and 'Georges et Louis'.
These series have all been collected in albums at Audie, as well as his independent short stories ('Route Vers L'Enfer', 'La Messie est Revenu', 'L'Homme à La Valise', 'Le Romantisme est Absolu', 'L'Esprit, le Corps et la Graine' and 'Voyage au Bout de la Lune'). Besides his work for Fluide Glacial, Goossens has also cooperated on À Suivre, Marie-France, Psikopat and Rigolo. His short stories for Rigolo have been collected in the album 'Laisse Autant le Vent Emporter' at Humanoïdes Associés ini 1985.
