About Erik Therme

Erik Therme has thrashed with multiple garage bands, (inadvertently) harbored runaways, and met Darth Vader. None of these have come close to the thrill of releasing his debut novel, Mortom.

When he’s not at his computer, he can be found cheering on his oldest daughter’s volleyball team, or chilling on the PS3 with his 10-year-old. He currently resides in Iowa City, Iowa—one of only 7 places in the world the UNESCO has certified as a “City of Literature.”

Review by: Furious Deep on Feb. 26, 2014 :
I tend to read mostly horror and mystery thriller books, and I sometimes think I have seen every plot device there is. However, every once in a while a story comes along that seems to out wit me at every turn. Mortom was one of those books. Every time I thought I had it figured out, the author was always one step ahead of me. There were times when I actually laughed out loud because Mr. Therme would leave me a breadcrumb to follow, and as soon as I made an assumption about where the clue would lead, he would masterfully pull the rug right out from under me. Each time I would grin and say to my self, "Well played Mr. Therme. You got me this time, but I will catch you eventually!" The best part was that I never did catch him though, and when all the secrets were finally revealed, I never saw any of it coming.

Mortom was a great read, and I feel lucky to have discovered it. The story was so engrossing that I devoured the whole book in just a few days. I cannot recommend this one highly enough. Give it a read, and you will be just excited as I am to see what Erik Therme does next!
