T. Allen Winn began writing in 2003 while being cooped up in hotels during business travel. Completing a 650 page so called novel he became hooked. The homegrown Abbeville, S.C. boy embraced the experience completing one novel and then leaping into the next one, fun and therapy at the time. That changed in 2011 when a chance encounter brought stranger and new neighbor Bob O'Brien to his Pawley's Island doorsteps. Bob didn't realize the neighborhood home had been sold and apologized when Tom greeted him instead of the man he had expected to see. Book in hand, Bob had just published his first novel and explained the previous neighbor had shown interest in writing. Tom remarked he dabbled in writing to which Bob asked, do you have a manuscript. Tom replied ten. Bob had just started Prose Press, a publishing company and suggested publishing one. You can't make this stuff up.
T. Allen Winn's first novel, Road Rage joined the ranks of the published a few months later. To date Tom has now published eleven books and has short stories featured in two others. He and his wife Judy currently reside in Myrtle Beach where he is retired and continues to write and has now published four books under his brand, Buttermilk Books.
