Author Dane Cobain started writing at the age of fourteen, progressing quickly from lyrics and music to journals, short stories, poetry and the first draft of an early novel. He studied creative writing at London’s Roehampton University, earning a bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing before embarking on a career in social media marketing.
In 2013, Cobain launched SocialBookshelves.com, a website that soon became one of the top book blogs in the UK, and through this site, Cobain made the acquaintance of Jesse James Freeman, the former VP of Community Management at Booktrope Publishing. In 2015, Cobain’s debut novella, a supernatural thriller called No Rest for the Wicked, was released by Booktrope’s Forsaken imprint.
Cobain’s second book, a collection of poetry called Eyes Like Lighthouses When the Boats Come Home, was released by Booktrope Editions in March 2016, and this was followed by a novel called Former.ly in June of 2016 and a non-fiction work called Social Paranoia: How Consumers and Brands Can Stay Safe in a Connected World in August of 2016.
