One of today's most popular writers, whose novels have sold over 200 million copies worldwide and of which twenty-nine have appeared on international bestseller lists, Dean Koontz has never fully revealed his most dramatic story: his own. From his difficult childhood in rural Pennsylvania, through his years as a teacher striving to get his work published, to his spectacular breakthrough to worldwide literary fame, Dean Koontz's life has been filled with struggle.
Koontz generally shuns the celebrity associated with being a bestselling author and guards his privacy fiercely. Katherine Ramsland is the first biographer with whom he has ever co-operated. Although she interviewed him extensively, he did not influence or guide her work and the result is a ruthlessly honest view of one of today's most widely read authors.
Koontz talks freely about his dark and troubled life as a child and the major psychological obstacles he has had to overcome. For Koontz's many fans, this is the first chance to read about their favourite writer - they will seize it with enthusiasm.
