About Thom Satterlee

For twelve years I taught college-level English, primarily creative writing, but since the fall of 2011 I've been a full-time, stay-at-home writer. I live in Marion, Indiana, with my wife Kathy and our two pets--a dog named Daisy and a bird named Eve.


Review by: John Turnbull on Feb. 13, 2013 :
I am not a reader of the crime genre or whodunits but Satterlee's novel has so much more going for it: gray Scandinavian atmospheric, a protagonist reminiscent of Ignatius J. Reilly in A Confederacy of Dunces (at least in regard to gastronomic pursuits), perspectives on the inner scape of autism and, most engaging, a sustained dialogic with the creative complex of Søren Kierkegaard. The work is finely observed, compassionate, pulsing, educational. If you think you know how to pronounce "Kierkegaard," guess again.
