About the Author

Dain Dunston has spent twenty-five years in executive coaching and communications for Fortune 500 companies, before which he served variously as a marketing executive, a real estate sales person, a restaurateur, a yogi and a bodyguard for a short list of notable executives and celebrities, including, for one unforgettable evening, Jerry Garcia.

The Straight Dope is Dain's second novel. His first, The Downside of Up, A Comic Novel of Outrageous Fortune, was published in 2014. Dain is the co-author, with Drs. Kevin and Jackie Freiberg, of Nanovation: How a Little Car Can Teach the World to Think Big and Act Bold, a case study of how global companies create disruptive innovation through radically low-cost products (Thomas Nelson, 2011). In addition to his corporate speech writing, he wrote one-man shows for Pat Oliphant, Dick Cavett, Patrick Stewart, Tommy Lee Jones and John Travolta. He studied writing with Horton Foote, Romulus Linney, Marie Myung-Ok Lee and John Casey. His play, The Red Guide, received the Live Oak Prize for Best New American Play of 1996.

Dain lives with his wife Jean Compton in the hills outside of Austin, Texas.
