Dean Koontz Net Worth

Dean Koontz Net Worth : $160 Million

With pseudonyms such as David Axton, Leigh Nichols and Brian Coffey characterizing his early career, Dean Ray Koontz has a number of literary materials under his belt. This can be broken down into 28 hardcover and paperback books topping the New York Times Bestseller List and a reported sale of over 450 million copies of his books.

Life for him wasn’t as rosy during his childhood as it is now. He was the target of constant abuse from his alcoholic father. This experience, according to him, coupled with his mother’s courage influenced his writing. He won his first award during a fiction writing competition while at the Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania.

He wrote his first novel during his spare time and followed it up with a series of science fiction novels. He later wrote suspense and horror fiction under his own name and other pen names. After years of writing, he had his big break with the novel Whispers which came out in 1980. From then on, his books regularly became bestsellers. His work has seen screenplay and film adaptations and despite a few controversies surrounding some of his work, Koontz has a net worth of $160 million and at one point he was ranked as the world’s sixth highest paid author.
