Earle Wescott

Earle Wescott was born in Maine and graduated from Bates College in 1968. After serving with the U.S. Army in Alaska, he received his master’s degree from the University of New Hampshire and Ph.D. from the University of Denver. He has taught both English and creative writing, and his short fiction has appeared in a number of periodicals, including Yankee and Wooden Boat. The hardback of Winter Wolves was originally published by Yankee Books. Bantam subsequently published the American paperback and Hodder and Stoughton the British edition.

The author lives in The Woodlands, Texas with his wife, Sharon Curran-Wescott. Their son, Skye, is a recent graduate of the University of Art and Design in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Wescott has traveled much in Alaska and the Southwest, and is at work on a novel about the Ute Indian diaspora of 1880 Colorado. Another novel, in which the evil Inuit spirit tunghat plays a prominent role, is with longtime agent and friend, Jacques de Spoelberch.

“Place is the protagonist of my fiction,” Wescott says. “It sets the mood and sheds a history, and mood and history determine fate.”
