After completing a BA in Film Studies in 2004, Dean Petersen took his love of storytelling and horror movies back to Wyoming where he makes documentaries and promotional videos. Always on the road for work, he relishes the opportunity to listen to Stephen King and Gillian Flynn’s audiobooks as the open spaces of his favorite state roll past the windows. In 2011, Dean resigned from work to serve in the US Army where he was stationed in Germany but was never sent to a combat zone.
The Burqa Cave is his first attempt to exorcise the frightening things he’s seen in his head for years and pen them into a novel. Now back in The Cowboy State, Dean hopes to write more soon if he can get a minute between taking care of his three small children and his giant Saint Bernard.
