Author, Scarlett Dean has been a true horror and mystery fan since childhood, and has always enjoyed creating her own dark worlds and characters.
Growing up, Scarlett faithfully watched the daytime soap, Dark Shadows, and spent every Saturday morning watching Charlie Chan, and Sherlock Holmes mysteries. "My love of horror and mystery has led me to combine the two genres."
Dean is an avid reader who is always looking for a really good mystery or scare. She has published her own quarterly magazine of other authors' works in fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. She enjoys motivational speaking at area schools to promote the gift of writing and encourage reading.
She is married with three grown children, five grandchildren, and is the proud mom of two dogs. Additionally, her characters are practically family when she's writing a book, often keeping her awake at night. "Being a writer allows you to get away with hearing voices, without being committed!"
