Scarlett Dean has been a true mystery and horror fan since childhood, and has always enjoyed creating her own dark worlds and characters; penning her first short story at the age of eight.

Eventually her love of both paranormal and mystery genres came together in her literary works. “My horror and paranormal novels include mystery, so when I wrote my first true mystery novel, Invisible Shield, I couldn’t resist adding paranormal elements.” Kirkus reviews has this to say about it, “A provocative series kickoff that my inaugurate a new subgenere, the paranormal police procedural.”

Scarlett is an avid reader of all mysterious and paranormal. As a full time author, she has published her own quarterly magazine of other author’s works in fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, and is the author of four published novels, ranging from horror to dark romantic fantasy. She enjoys motivational speaking at area schools to promote the gift of writing and encourage reading. “Reading to children is key, and I thank my Mother and all of my teachers for opening that magical door for me.”

Scarlett Dean has three children, and a Siberian Husky who is more like a fourth child than a pet. Of course her characters are practically family when she’s writing a book, often keeping her awake at night.
