His novels have sold over 450 million copies worldwide and have been translated in to 38 different languages. He is considered one of the most successful authors alive today.

Dean Koontz was born in July of 1945, a month before World War II ended in the Pacific. His childhood had a strong influence on his writing as he grew older. Dean’s father, Raymond Koontz, was extremely abusive to him and his mother. His mother’s courage in standing up to her husband also served as an inspiration in Dean’s writing. He attended Shippensburg State College in Pennsylvania where he won an Atlantic Monthly competition for his writing, which further encouraged him to continue. After graduation in the 1960s, Dean went to work as a teacher at Mechanicsburg High School. During the 60s Dean also worked for a government-funded program that sought to help violent and troubled youth. His predecessor was in the hospital as a result of a beating by the very kids Dean was helping. Dean’s experiences with the program provided him with a new outlook on government, and politics in general.

In the year 1968 Dean Koontz released his first novel titled: Star Quest. It was the first of over a dozen science fiction novels that followed. Dean has published over a hundred pieces of work to date, mostly of the suspense-thriller genre that heavily involve science fiction. His books incorporate other genres, adding variety to each release. Dean has also written under nine different pen names such as Brian Coffey, Aaron Wolfe, and David Axton to name a few. He has a love for his golden retrievers, which have led to dogs playing major roles in his works. Trixie, who Dean received as a gift from a charity he contributed to, passed in the year 2007 and served as a major inspiration for the canine characters through many of his works. Dean is married to his wife Gerda, and lives in Southern California with their golden retriever. Dean Koontz’s popularity has helped him rank next to authors such as Stephen King. In the year 2008, Dean was ranked as the sixth highest paid author, at an approximated 25 million dollars each year.

In the novel Odd faces off against his new enemy, and finds himself on a journey somewhere he never thought he’d be. A feature film was scheduled to be released in 2013 about the Odd Thomas series, but was unable to due to legal action between production studios.

His modern adaptation of Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein also spawned a 6 part series, or two trilogies. In this modern day version, Victor Frankenstein is using modern technology to create monsters. The series inspired a television movie on the USA Network that was produced by Martin Scorsese. The film was intended to serve as a pilot for a potential series on the network.

As a result of his parting ways from the project, Dean went on to write the second and third parts of the first trilogy. There are plans for a full-feature film as an entertainment company who wishes to bring it to the big screen picked up the series.
