Dean Whitlock is the author of novels for young adults and short stories for their parents. His focus is fantasy literature, but his skills extend to playwriting, storytelling, and acting. His books include Sky Carver and Raven, both from Clarion Books. His short stories have appeared in Asimov’s, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, and other genre publications.

Dean enjoys introducing young people to the excitement of storytelling through the written word. In the classroom, he tries to engage every student, using a lively question-and-response dialog mixed with group and solo exercises that give everyone a chance to write, read, speak up, and stretch their imaginations. Dean lives with his wife and cats in Thetford Center, VT.
