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. http://talkaboutafterhours.blogspot.com/

The Tree Goddess by Tom Raimbault is truly “a novel of mystery and macabre” as the author so eloquently puts it. This story is written in a unique perspective that comes with a story unfolding with a well read narrative. With each new chapter and turn of a page, the thrilling suspense within captivates the reader time and time again. From the legends and rumors surrounding the Trivelli family and house, to the strange events happening in and around Mapleview, Route 4, and Sillmac; the mystery will have you second guessing yourself as you try to sort out the facts from the fiction.
With each new disappearance that crops up, the plot only thickens; then just when you feel you can’t stand it anymore, and that you have the tangled web unwoven, a new twist leaves you dangling, grasping for more. A masterfully crafted ending pops up out of nowhere taking the reader by utter surprise. This book is well worth the read, and it is recommended that a second read be completed, for there are those little details that are picked up, which had been previously overlooked. This book is highly recommended for those avid readers of the mystery, suspense, macabre, thriller, and even drama genres. For this novel has a little bit of everything bound within its pages.
