Dodge Winston was born in Oakland, CA in 1970. He attended Napa Valley College and Solano Community College accumulating 70 units when the desire to write full-time struck. Placing the pursuit of a higher education on the back burner, he wrote voraciously, knocking out screenplays, teleplays, treatments, news articles, and other works.
Some of the things he enjoys are hiking, camping, hunting, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), anime, well-made movies (Sin City, End of Watch, The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Matrix, Looper), unique authors (Robert E. Howard, Karl Edward Wagner, James Patterson), topics related to society (Jeremy Rifkin, Jagdish Bhagwati). He is a creator at heart, an information junky and someone who thoroughly enjoys fiction and how it can mirror reality.
Dodge is married, has two children, is considering getting a dog for the family, and currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. You can find Dodge in one of three places – rehabbing the family house (room by room), working at the water quality control plant or taking advantage of slivers of writing time when all is quiet.
