Horror story master. Science fiction dabbler. A part-time thriller screenwriter and a full-time dog lover. Yes, internationally acclaimed author Dean Koontz is possibly one of the only literary stars with a whole section of his website dedicated to his beloved dog, Trixie Koontz. He's published more than half a dozen New York Times hardcover bestsellers and won favorable reviews from across the globe. His books are known for taking readers into worlds that defy “logic yet seem real.” When it comes to literary horror, Koontz is considered a leading rival with Stephen King. Come hear this talented storyteller share his tale on writing fiction—and how much do you want to bet he'll mention Trixie at some point?
