Dexter Herron was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. He had an impassioned imagination at a young age and began writing his first stories on an Underwood typewriter salvaged from a World War Two diesel submarine. Updating to the high tech computer, The Commodore 64, he wrote his first novel, Knight of Chaos, a sword and sorcery adventure.
The quintessential Boy Scout, he worked for Westchester-Putnam Councils as a program director for Curtis S. Read Scout Reservation.
Joining the Marines after High School he was stationed in Okinawa Japan and Jacksonville North Carolina first as an accountant and then attached to Forward Recon. He also served as an Embassy Guard in North Africa and Eastern Europe. After his enlistment, he finished his college degree in Criminology at the University of Connecticut and currently works as a Police Sergeant in Mystic Connecticut.
He is married and has four cats, three which like him, and lives in a beautiful home nicked named ‘The Shire’ by all who visit. When he isn’t writing he tinkers with his 1974 Volkswagen Super Beetle named ‘Gen’. He is a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism and is a Master of Arms. He is an Eagle Scout, a Boy Scout Venture Crew Advisor, Explorer Post Associate Advisor and a Boy Scout Committee Member. His favorite authors are Kurt Vonnegut Jr, Anne McCaffrey, J.R.R. Tolkien, Bernard Cornwell, and Frank Miller.
His first novel, Knight of Chaos, is available where books are sold.
Kagetsunami wanted to put in things like, I squashed a bug on the US Ambassador's forehead, and that I ate Ice Cream in Red Square One in February(Vanilla). Ah, donno. I'm still creeped out by the bug cause he got splattered good and I have a thing about flies and the ice cream things is only significant because one, at the time you could only get vannilla ice cream and two they usually didn't sell it in Moscow in February to people wearing dress shoes standing in ankle deep snow. But the ice cream was really good.
But does that make you want to read a book knowing the author has a thing for ice cream and flies?
