Dean Arnold
About
: Dean writes. Books, movie scripts, articles, and documentary treatments. Sometimes he publishes and produces them. He's eclectic and even contradictory: history lover, futurist, pro-life conservative, anti-establishment peacenik—a revolutionary at heart who submits to an ancient church tradition. Stay away, unless you want to be challenged, slightly irritated, and altered for the better.
