Grant Winston

Grant Winston is a native Kentuckian who moved to the Tucson area and has resided here since 1996. Grant's undergraduate degree is in Philosophy, and upon graduating from law school he practiced as a lawyer in Kentucky and Arizona for 33 years. In early 2015, Grant retired from the practice of law and substitute taught in the local public schools until he fully retired at the end of 2016 to be a full-time stay-at-home dad and help his wife raising their two little daughters.

Grant has been a voracious reader of history, philosophy and literature since his teen years. His two novels, "The Lost Petal of the White Rose" (2017), and "Life on Ampelus" (2018), are cross-genre works combining soft science fiction with political topics relevant to today, as well as a good dose of humor. Grant is currently working on his third novel, the working title of which is "Autarchy."

Grant and his wife reside outside of Tucson with their two daugthers, aged four-and-one half years and one-and-one half years.
