Our 2017 release, Downstairs at the White House, has been an Amazon bestseller in the Political Humor and History Humor categories for more than 100 weeks and the #1 bestseller in Teen and Young Adult President and First Family Biographies for the past year. 


At the age of 17, Don Stinson landed a job in the White House during Watergate, the largest political scandal in American history. A truly insignificant member of the Nixon White House staff, he frequently loitered outside of the Oval Office to  watch it  unfold.  What he saw ran the gamut from the deeply profound to the wildly hilarious.

He was also a kid who did the same kind of harebrained things most teenagers do. He fought with a foreign head of state for space in a restroom. He devised a shortcut that tripped countless alarms and summoned an agitated band of Secret Service agents. He spilled ice water on Frank Sinatra's sock.  And that was just the small stuff. 

A funny, fast-paced memoir, Downstairs at the White House is richly decorated with presidents, first ladies, celebrities ... and events that shook America.

Downstairs at the White House is available from amazon.com (paperback, Kindle, and Audible), iTunes.apple.com (Audiobook only) and in paperback from retailers including barnesandnoble.com, walmart.com, strandbooks.com, booksamillion.com, shop.harvard.com, shop.booksandbooks.com, and the Lincoln, Hoover, FDR, Truman, Eisenhower, LBJ, Nixon, and Ford Presidential Museums.
