Dean Hodsfry


Dean has been writing since he was in his late teens almost 15 years ago. Born and bred in rural South Wales. Dean would spend most of his evening's in his bedroom, creating all sorts of weird and crazy ideas both for his writing and for his hobbies.

Dean left his homeland in the early Noughties, to seek better employment. On his travels he had met a young girl and decided to move to Oxfordshire to be with her. He has currently been married since 2005 to that same girl and she is fully behind him with his writing and has even started working on her own story

Currently Dean is living with his wife in the lovely town of Chipping Norton, although fully employed he does dedicate his time to writing and has several projects on the go at the moment.
