DeWeese was an active member of science fiction fandom, and his first stories were published in science fiction fanzines. He earned an associate degree in electronics from Valparaiso Technical Institute in 1953. He worked for General Motors' Delco Electronics Division as a technician in Kokomo, Indiana from 1954-1959, and as a technical writer (including for the Apollo Program) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin from 1959 to 1974 (when he became a fulltime freelance writer). He married Beverly Amers, a librarian, in 1955.
DeWeese's first professionally-published fiction, the novels The Invisibility Affair and The Mind-Twisters Affair (both 1967), were part of the series of Man from U.N.C.L.E. books written with fellow science fiction fan "Buck" Coulson under the pseudonym Thomas Stratton, which the two had previously used for fiction published in fanzines. DeWeese since has written over forty books, including novels in the Star Trek, Ravenloft, Dinotopia, and Amazing Stories series. His best-known young adult novel is The Adventures of a Two-Minute Werewolf, which was made into a television movie of the same name.
His papers from 1967-2002 are held at the library of the University of Southern Mississippi.
He and Beverly have lived in Milwaukee since 1959.
