Dean Ocean

Burdened with an over-active imagination, Dean began writing and telling stories at an early age, and studying creative writing at the University of Idaho was a natural extension of that. Dean Ocean lives in Southern Idaho where his day job has him training dogs in advanced obedience and competitive sports. He lives with five very strange dogs and a one-eyed cat named Hawkeye. Dean grew up a tough farm kid on the family farm and at local rodeos. He suffers from an inescapable Peter Pan complex and a love for the outdoors. When not writing or training dogs, he can be found hiking in the mountains and foothills around his home.
