Tom Milton

Biography

My first career was in journalism with the Wall Street Journal, after which I served in the army during the Vietnam War. I then joined a large international bank and worked overseas, initially as an economic/political analyst and finally as a senior executive. I spent the next thirty years living and working in foreign countries, which gave me settings for my novels (Buenos Aires, Madrid, London, Santo Domingo, and so on). After retiring from my banking career I joined the faculty of Mercy College, where I am a professor of international business.
