This fascinating authorized biography reveals for the first time the details behind the turbulent private life and constant struggle of Dean Koontz, one of the world's bestselling writers.

With More than 70 Novels to His Account, Including seven hardcover and twelve paperback number one New York Times bestsellers, Dean Koontz is one of the most popular writers in the world today. Yet until now, his most haunting story -- his own -- has never been told.

Based on hundreds of hours of interviews with Koontz, critically acclaimed biographer Katherine Ramsland reveals a publicly elusive figure who carefully guards his privacy -- and finds a troubled past filled with psychological struggle ... a tale that could mirror one of Koontz's own dramatic novels. From his difficult childhood with an abusive father to his attempt to become a professional author under numerous pseudonyms in a multitude of genres to his ultimate breakthrough, this brutally honest biography gives fans new insight into the life and work of this master of horror and suspense.

"Her book, a major literary biography, will be of great interest not only to Koontz's legion of fans, but to anyone eager to know more about the vital interactions between life and art". -- Publishers Weekly
