Dennis Crosby

"Marketing In The COVID Era"

Dennis Crosby’s storied early career working in criminal justice, private investigation, forensics psychology, and social work gave him a keen sense of observation and human nature. These skills also proved valuable as Dennis wrote his debut novel, “Death’s Legacy.”

Long in the works, Dennis boldly released the novel in late October 2020, a challenging time for breaking new authors. He’ll discuss the how his urban fantasy tale hit the marketplace in a big way, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes.
