Will Dean

Author Will Dean grew up in the East Midlands, and lived in nine different villages before he turned eighteen.

Will was a bookish and daydreaming kid that found comfort in nature and stories and continues to still. He studied Law at the London School of Economics.

Will has worked as a waiter, a laborer on a building site, and sold discount haircut coupons on the streets in London for more than a year. Eventually, he began designing and managing electronic trading systems. After he worked that job for eight years, he moved to a small clearing in the middle of a huge Swedish elk forest and built his wooden house. It is here that he compulsively reads and writes and lives with his wife.
