Don Winslow

Don Winslow is an American author.

He has written the screenplays for Savages, Satori and other adaptations of his novels with screenwriter/producer Shane Salerno.

Early life

Winslow was born in New York City on Halloween night 1953, but grew up in Perryville, a beach town near the village of Matunuck, Rhode Island. He credits his parents for preparing him to become a writer: his mother was a librarian, and his father was a non-commissioned officer in the United States Navy who told stories and invited Navy friends around who told more. They inspired Winslow to become a storyteller himself. He majored in African History at the University of Nebraska.

Career

Winslow explored many forms of career and study before he became a career writer. In the late 1970s, he moved back to New York City, first working as manager of a chain of movie theaters, then as a private investigator in movie theaters and the back alleys of Times Square. He went back to school to earn a master's degree in Military History, led safaris in Kenya and hiking trips in China's Sichuan province. His first published novel, A Cool Breeze on the Underground (1991) was written during this time. It was the first of a series of books about investigator Neal Carey, and was nominated for an Edgar award. Winslow's career as an investigator would repeatedly bring him to California, to look into arson cases; his storytelling skills helped in explaining cases to juries. In the mid-1990s, he moved to California with his wife Jean and their infant son, Thomas, and kept writing. His thriller The Death and Life of Bobby Z (1997) was a success, and allowed him to become a full-time writer. They live in Julian, California.

In 2007 Bobby Z was turned into a film starring Paul Walker and Laurence Fishburne. Winslow wrote the adaptation of Savages into a film of the same name with Oliver Stone directing.

Writing process

Winslow has said that he writes each morning from 5:30 to 10 and then hikes six or seven miles before returning to work. He typically works on two books at a time, moving to the other when work on the first stalls. He says the longest he has gone without writing after a book is completed is five days. He calls it an addiction.

The time it takes him to write a book varies. The Death and Life of Bobby Z was written on the train between Dana Point, California and Los Angeles, one chapter per trip. The Power of the Dog took six years to research and write, including traveling to Mexico to interview people with similar experiences as the book's characters.
