STEVE DEAN

Steve Dean

Over the years, Steve Dean tried several jobs before he began writing his own fiction, eventually becoming a full-time writer. In the last twenty-five years, Steve has authored science-fiction and fantasy novels, short stories, and material for a variety of tabletop and video games.

Inspired by many of the top names in genre fiction, his stories are filled with action and adventure but are always told through the eyes of fully rounded and deep characters. Humour is also important to Steve, whether in his full-on and more adult comedies, or just the occasional lighter moments in the darkest of tales. 

When not dreaming up monsters and humaliens, he also grows cacti and house plants, makes furniture, and tinkers with computers and other technology in his native city of Nottingham in the UK.

When not dreaming up strange monsters and robots, Steve plays tabletop and video role-playing games far too much, watches science fiction as well as science and technology documentaries, and reads from his ever-growing library of genre novels. Just for a change, he also grows cacti and house plants, makes furniture, and tinkers with computers and other technology.
