About Tom

Tom Winton has been listed as an Amazon Top 100 Author in Literary Fiction.
It has been said that he is a man who writes with his pen dipped in his soul.

Born in New York City, Tom has done everything from working on a railroad gang in the Colorado Rockies to driving a taxicab in Manhattan. He’s been a mailman, a salesman, an entrepreneur and more. He now lives in Florida with his wife Blanche and their ill-tempered but loveable Jack Russell terrier, Ginger. They spend part of their time in Carmel, Maine.

Mr. Winton’s debut novel, Beyond Nostalgia, has been likened to such classics as Catcher in the Rye and To Kill a Mockingbird. Praised as “A 20th century Gone with the Wind,” Beyond Nostalgia is a four-time Amazon Bestseller.

His second novel The Last American Martyr has been on six bestseller lists at the same time. His third book, Four Days with Hemingway’s Ghost, has been a repeat bestseller as well.

Tom’s newest release–a novella entitled Within a Man’s Heart, came out in January 2013.

    Just read beyond Nostalgia. What a terrific read!!!
    Growing up on Long Island in the 60s, I’d been to Jahn’s Ice Cream Parlor (did you ever have The Kitchen Sink?), countless Mets games and quite a few of those Irish bars you wrote about.
    Great job Tom – Can’t wait to read “The Last American Martyr”.

    Regards,
    John Woodward

    You could certainly see your expertise in the work you write. The world hopes for more passionate writers such as you who aren’t afraid to say how they believe. At all times go after your heart.

    Beyond Nostalgia was my first book that I read by Tom Winton and I couldn’t put it down. It brought back so many memories of me growing up in the area on Patterson, NJ and then moving to Florida for college and my career. So many places that you wrote about were places that I have been and enjoyed. Jahn’s Ice Cream place, Ft.Lauderdale and the Elbow Room, Highlands NC area where we spend out summers and part of fall, and so many memories of what it was like growing up in the late 50′s through the early 70′s. I can’t wait to read the other books you have written. Keep up the great work!
