Wynn Parks was born in the southern U.S., and raised on Air Force Bases scattered from the Philippines to Turkey. He put himself through graduate school by working summers as a Driller's Helper in the Wyoming coal fields, and graduated from the Iowa Writers' Workshop.
After six months as a Dobey-Paisano Fellow at the University of Texas, he later went to the Greek island of Paros to teach Writing at The Aegean School of Fine Arts. Though he forayed off-island to Europe, North Africa,and Iran,it was Paros that was his haven from the middle Seventies through the mid-Eighties. The author currently lives in the United States in Blue Mountain Beach, Florida.
Many of the stories featured on Smashwords are drawn from Wynn Parks'novel, "Songs from Dinosaki's Jukebox". "Jukebox" grew out of the author's years in Greece and earlier, Turkey, and his life-long sense of connection with the Aegean.
