I’m Dean Brooks. Novelist, constant reader, and YouTuber.

I’m a self-published author with two novels on Amazon. You can find my books here.

NEMESIS – A “suburban thriller” that poses the question: What would you do if you were the given the chance to have your worst enemy killed, free of charge, without any chance of facing repercussions? Would you take it? Check out this high-concept thriller.

THE LEK – An irreverent, dystopian satire set in a world where procreation is strictly regulated, and men have to compete in a deadly tournament known as The Lek for the right to reproduce. Be sure to check out this X-Rated version of the Hunger Games.

For fiction, I tend to write satires, high-concept thrillers, horror, and comedy novellas. I only have two books published at the moment, but look for a lot more to come in 2023.

On Medium, I like to write about a whole range of topics, including: writing, publishing, book and movie reviews, business, investing, finance, cryptocurrency, culture, social commentary, humor, and technology.

If those topics interest you, and you’d like to receive my articles the moment I post them, please sign up for my email list here on Medium, or follow me here on DeanBrooks.org.

A few brief facts about me:

-I went back to college in my 30s to finish my degree. I graduated in 2018 from NDSU with a B.S. in English.

-Some of my favorite authors include Ira Levin, Stephen King, Arthur Hailey, and Harlan Ellison. I also greatly admire writer/directors Rod Serling, James Cameron, and Taylor Sheridan.

-I regularly donate blood to the Red Cross. I first gave blood as a junior in high school back in 1999, in fact, and I highly encourage others to give if they can. It’s healthy, helps others in need, and you get a brief mini-physical everytime you go. You’ll also get a heads up if you have any health issues as your blood is rigorously screened after you’ve donated.

I can also be found on Twitter. Thanks for checking out my profile.
