Don Winslow, the son of a sailor and a librarian, grew up with a love of
books and storytelling in a small coastal Rhode Island town. He left at
age seventeen to study journalism at the University of Nebraska, where
he earned a degree in African Studies. While in college, he traveled to
southern Africa, sparking a lifelong involvement with that continent.
Winslow’s travels took him to California, Idaho, and Montana before he
moved to New York City to become a writer, making his living as a movie
theater manager and later a private investigator in Times Square –
‘before Mickey Mouse took it over’. He left to get a master’s degree in
Military History. Winslow was supposed to go into the Foreign Service,
but instead joined a friend’s safari firm in Kenya, leading photographic
safaris there as well as hiking trips in the mountains of southwestern
China, and directing Shakespeare on summer programs in Oxford.
While bouncing back and forth between Asia, Africa, Europe and America, Winslow wrote his first novel, A Cool Breeze On The Underground, which was nominated for an Edgar Award.
Now with a wife and young son, Winslow went back to investigative
work, mostly in California, where he and his family lived in hotels for
almost three years as he worked cases and became a trial consultant. A
film and publishing deal for his novel The Death and Life of Bobby Z allowed Winslow to be full-time writer and settle in his beloved southern California, the setting for many of his books.
Winslow then branched out into television and film, his work
attracting the attention of filmmakers and actors such as Michael Mann,
Martin Scorsese, Robert DeNiro and Leonardo DiCaprio. With his friend
Shane Salerno, Winslow wrote a television series, UC Undercover, and he and Salerno later wrote the screen adaptation of Winslow’s novel, Savages, filmed by Oliver Stone. Winslow and Salerno currently have several film projects in process.
In addition to his novels, Winslow has published fourteen short
stories in anthologies and magazines such as Esquire, The LA Times
Magazine and Playboy. He has written columns for The Huffington Post as
well a number of foreign newspapers.
