Don Gillette has been writing since he asked for (and received) one of the original "Tom Thumb" typewriters for his 6th birthday.
He is the author of three novels, a dozen volumes of poetry, hundreds of short stories and newspaper articles, a complete collection of his political humor pages from the now-defunct weekly newspaper, The Wilson County Advocate, and most recently a book of short fiction, Old Leather, published in July 2015.
Don spent 25 years in the Tennessee Army National Guard and served on active duty during Operations Desert Storm and Desert Shield. He retired in 1996 as a Chief Warrant Officer Four and subsequently spent 20 years as the VP of Military Operations for Reese Group, Inc.
Don is an active member of the Horror Writers Association.
He currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee, with his wife, Sim Yoon.
