A native of Kentucky and now a long time resident of North Carolina, Tom has been writing for others as long as he can remember. Those efforts were good enough to win prizes in grade school, get a master's thesis accepted, and pass college and graduate school classes in between. He is married and his two now grown sons loved his stories as children so much Tom figures everyone else is waiting to read them as well. For young adults writing the "what if" novel has the greatest appeal for him. With retirement nearing from his career in Christian ministry, Tom plans to make writing a major part of his life while continuing to volunteer at his local church.
