I’m honored to have Dean Koontz back on the podcast (you can catch my first interview with Dean Koontz here).
When he was a senior in college, Dean Koontz won an Atlantic Monthly fiction competition and has been writing ever since. His books are published in 38 languages and he has sold over 500 million copies to date.
Fourteen of his novels have risen to number one on the New York Times hardcover bestseller list (One Door Away From Heaven, From the Corner of His Eye, Midnight, Cold Fire, The Bad Place, Hideaway, Dragon Tears, Intensity, Sole Survivor, The Husband, Odd Hours, Relentless, What the Night Knows, and 77 Shadow Street), making him one of only a dozen writers ever to have achieved that milestone. Sixteen of his books have risen to the number one position in paperback. His books have also been major bestsellers in countries as diverse as Japan and Sweden. (Source: DeanKoontz.com)
His latest book, Devoted was released on March 31, 2020. During this interview we talk about the writing of Devoted, his legendary career, and the surreal experience of going viral for supposedly “predicting” the Coronavirus pandemic.
