Winslow Swan

Biography

Born and raised in Atlanta, Ga, I grew up surrounded by mystery and suspense, in book form. I also grew up listening not only to the great old radio horror shows but also heard the original run of the CBS Radio Mystery Theater. I contribute them for my imagination of horror and suspense. My favorite authors at the time were of course Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and Edgar Allen Poe. I now live in the North Georgia mountains along with my wife, two dogs, four chickens and one rooster. Writing can, at times, become arduous and trying to find the quiet time to actually get my thoughts and stories down can sometimes be quite straining. However, I continue to do what I can to trouble the dreams of the reader.
I find myself to be one of the few who have fulfilled all of their dreams. I have worked in both radio and television, as an actor and a writer, and have also appeared on stage. I have made two films (which shall both never see the light of day) and am now concentrating on a writing as a career.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born in Atlanta, Georgia at the age the two where I learned to play every instrument in the orchestra. Music was my first love, but all of the characters that invaded my dreams were screaming to come to life onto the written page. My childhood was not average, as my parents took me to see stage plays at the Fabulous Fox Theater.
When did you first start writing?
My first story was written in an airplane when I was 9. My mother took me to Washington D.C. for my spring break vacation. As I looked down on the lights of the city as we were heading out, I wrote a short story about a monster that devours the city. My macabre sense of humor stemmed from the many Vincent Price movies that I grew up on.

  • The Turning of the Spit on March 18, 2014

    A very interesting take on the demon possession stories that I have read. This is a quick and very good read, unless you happen to work in a slaughterhouse. Thanks for the nightmares, and may I someday reciprocate. Winslow Swan
