Don Winston grew up in Nashville and graduated from Princeton University. After a stint at Ralph Lauren headquarters in New York, he moved to Los Angeles to work in entertainment. "S'WANEE: A PARANOID THRILLER" was his debut novel, followed by "THE UNION CLUB: A SUBVERSIVE THRILLER" and "THE GRISTMILL PLAYHOUSE: A NIGHTMARE IN THREE ACTS." His new novel—"OUR FAMILY TROUBLE: A DOMESTIC THRILLER" was released April 2017.

He's not nearly as twisted as his books.

He lives in Hollywood.
