Dean W. Arnold
'History with a plot'—Dean W. Arnold's trademark style—delivers to readers a unique and edifying experience and has earned him acclaim from notables. He provides a sourced 'nonfiction novel’ where every exciting action and quote is true. "A page-turner," was the description for Arnold's book "The Cherokee Princes" by Gordon Wetmore, President of the Portrait Society of America, the world's largest. "I stayed up until 2:30 a.m. to finish it. The author captures the humanity in the history. He clothes the truth with flesh and blood—which is what any talented artist tries to do.” U.S. Senator Bob Corker, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, says, "Dean Arnold has a unique way of capturing the essence of an issue and communicating it through his clear but compelling style of writing." That endorsement also highlighted Arnold's book on the Cherokees which won 1st Runner-up for the Eric Hoffer Legacy Awards. Newsweek Editor and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jon Meacham said Arnold’s book "Old Money, New South" was “well worth reading.” The book traces the billionaire families of Coca-Cola bottling and their 100-year reign over the city where Coke bottling started, Chattanooga, Tennessee. His full feature documentary "Harriet's Secret: a progressive marriage in the 1890s" premiered at the Chattanooga IMAX Theater in October 2014. Arnold’s movie script "The Wizard and the Lion" on the dynamic relationship between authors J.R.R. Tolkien (The Lord of the Rings) and C.S. Lewis (The Chronicles of Narnia) was endorsed by the Oxford C.S. Lewis Society. "Significant historical details are clearly represented and yet [he provides] a well-crafted drama.” An Oxford Professor agrees. ". . . sincerely impressed," said Dr. Tyler Fisher. However, Arnold’s favorite endorsements come from readers who say “I read it in one day” and “I couldn’t put it down.” Dean grew up talking conservative theology over dinner with his Ph.D. father, a pastor, while his activist grandfather preached human rights and the glories of the United Nations. His mother teaches Biblical female roles in East Africa. Her grandfather founded the Hollywood Bowl and promoted free sex and socialism. Dean conquers the complexity with large doses of coffee, cigars, and liturgy. He is tonsured as “The Reader Gabriel” by the Orthodox Church in America.Read more Read less
