Author Spotlight – Dean Conan

About the Author: Dean Conan:

Conan grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, with a single mom and an absent father. It was his relationship with his mother that strengthen his character as a gentleman. His mother moonlighted as a blues singer during his early years. She would take little Conan to night clubs as her way of working and kept an eye on her son. It was these seedy bars that inspired Conan to go into show-business. When Hollywood failed to take him in, he tried to break into the modeling industry. Yet, Conan didn’t have quite the physique nor the flair to remain in Men Fashion, so he took to the mic as a comic. It didn’t take long for Conan to find out being in comedy wasn’t his niche either. Since Conan wasn’t a match for Broadway, he decided to pick up a pen and write fictional stories about his love life, friendships, and international travels.
