Dennis Huffington Jr.

Dennis Huffington is a bestselling author, blogger, multimedia producer and entrepreneur. In 2016, he founded Enter Media, LLC to publish his first book series. Book one of the series, a memoir subtitled "Inheritance" was a success with readers and became an Amazon bestseller in multiple categories, peaking in the Top 100 for e-books, Top 20 for memoirs and reaching a peak of #5 for LGBT memoirs.

Dennis toured to promote his first book on his own while learning the ins and outs of the publishing industry. He attended The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, the largest book festival in the United States. He was featured in the Indie Authors Pavilion at The Tucson Festival of Books, which is the largest festival of books in Arizona and Writer's Row at the Miami Book Fair, which hosts 200,000 fairgoers. Dennis has also produced a companion web series for the From Scratch book series, which can be viewed on YouTube and Amazon Video Services. Dennis celebrated the official release of the paperback version in Saint Louis, a city that he credits much of his personal growth.

A native of Southern New Jersey, Dennis served for over 10 years as a public school teacher in Saint Louis, Missouri. While a teacher, he earned dual master's degrees from the University of Missouri-St. Louis and an educational specialist's degree from Saint Louis University.

As a blogger, Dennis covered the Saint Louis premieres of National Geographic Channel's LA92 and FX's Snowfall, which allowed him to interview the Academy-Award® winning directors of LA92 and participate in panel discussions on race, police brutality and the responsibilities of the media, in response to the civil unrest in nearby Ferguson, Missouri.

Following the success of his first book, Enter Media expanded with the development of, a lifestyle brand and blog and, an entertainment news blog with an inspirational spin. While continuing to write, Dennis continues to produce original content for both and, with the goal of creating an online destination for amazing content.

By sharing his success and failures, Dennis hopes to inspire anyone within his reach to be fearless, be inspired, be encouraged and be empowered! He believes that no matter what our circumstances may be, we have all been given and gift and it is our duty to share that gift with the world.

Dennis is married and currently resides in Phoenix, Arizona.
