"All writing is to some degree based on personal experience, especially the emotions my characters feel, the thoughts they have about life and the struggles of life." ~ Dean Koontz

Dean Koontz Bio

Dean Koontz     Dean Koontz was born and raised in Pennsylvania. To survive a difficult childhood, he turned early on to books which could transport him magically to a better world. The desire to create the same escape for others explains in part his motivation to become a writer. He graduated from Shippensburg State College (now Shippensburg University), and his first job after graduation was with the Appalachian Poverty Program, where he was expected to counsel and tutor underprivileged children on a one-to-one basis. His first day on the job, he discovered that the previous occupier of his position had been beaten up by the very kids he had been trying to help and had landed in the hospital for several weeks. The following year was filled with challenge but also tension, and Koontz was more highly motivated than ever to build a career as a writer. He wrote nights and weekends, which he continued to do after leaving the poverty program and going to work as an English teacher in a suburban school district outside Harrisburg. After a year and a half in that position, his wife, Gerda, made him an offer he couldn't refuse: "I'll support you for five years," she said, "and if you can't make it as a writer in that time, you'll never make it." Obviously, he did make it, big time.¹
