About Tom Raimbault

Tom Raimbault is one of many Orion starseeds of Lyran ancestry who have been incarnated on Earth. His purpose in this life is to serve as a cosmic receiver, channeler and invoker of energy. But like many starseeds, Tom has knowledge of metaphysical energy, use of quartz crystals, astral travel, number divination and the likes.
Tom's current projects as a starseed include the development and construction of power and element grids in both physical and virtual form. There's been an emerging knowledge of creating algorithmic spells that tap into the planets of our solar system for purposes of magick. In recent times, he's also been given the ability to conjure up allies that will surely assist him in the near future as needed.
As a writer, Tom specializes in the genres of fantasy, horror, macabre and erotica. Many of his works are published. Be sure to check out Tom’s ongoing Mapleview project, a series of novels that relay the strangeness and horror of his fictional town, Mapleview. Currently published in the series is Amber—the death mask, and The Tree Goddess—a novel of mystery and macabre. In the spring of 2013, the second book of the Amber trilogy—sex magick—will be published.
And don’t forget his debut publication, Freaked out Horror—ghosts, the macabre and really, weird things!
Tom Raimbault resides in the Chicago land area with his wife and two daughters. When not writing, he works as an RF technician at the lab of Freescale Semiconductor. He is self-described on his resume as a “technology professional” who has worked with cellular and IP infrastructure, biomedical equipment, emergency two-way radios and computer hardware.
Tom began to produce weird writings back in 2000 while working the graveyard shift. The nightly edits were emailed to a small collection of coworkers who looked forward to something unusual to keep them awake or humored.
This practice was ended when he was moved to a different shift. Sadly, his enjoyment of writing was forgotten for several years until the autumn of 2007 when old friends received a “blast from the past” email with the recognizable words, “Hello All”. The strange writings and short stories had resumed and a personal website was soon to follow.
Be sure to check his blog where he shares his daily freestyle writings, short stories and even deleted scenes or excerpts from his published books.

Review by: Dan Fitzpatrick on March 11, 2010 :
Normally, I would give a good review for a book that entertains me. Even though it was a story of someone being beaten, I was enjoying it. I was actually finding it humorous ... at least the hotel clerk. I just had to chuckle at what I was reading because it seemed too fake and even a little absurd.

Without giving the story away, that feeling of glee from the absurdity of what was happening changed instantly. I suddenly felt guilty for finding joy in what I was reading. It was a great twist that I didn't see coming. Throughout the story, I was thinking 3 or 4 stars because I was enjoying it, but I'm going to give it 5 because I experienced a jaw drop, and that doesn't typically happen to me. I was had ... nice work.
