J.W. Paine

J.W. Paine has written for television, magazines, and newspapers for years. He is also a published novelist (under the name “Tom Elliott”). His novel The Dwelling was nominated for a Best First Novel award with the Horror Writers of America.

A veteran of everything from horse ranching in Colorado to covering commercial fishing conventions in Costa Rica, Paine’s experience with gambling comes from a lifetime of poker, blackjack, and slots. If he didn’t coin the expression “poker lessons are always expensive”, he’s certainly worn the edges off it.

Paine currently lives in Las Vegas, which he considers to be the “One True Happiest Place on Earth.”
