Indie Author Thomas C. Stone developed a fascination for science fiction early in life, reading most of the modern-day masters by fourteen years of age. As a student, Stone studied writing, classical literature, philosophy, linguistics, and computer science, obtaining degrees in linguistics, literature, education, and computer science. To support his writing, Stone has worked as a school teacher, technical writer, systems analyst, martial arts instructor, and various other odd jobs. Today, Stone writes both mainstream fiction and science fiction. Additionally, Stone has completed twenty novels and, by his own admission, is more interested in the depiction of characters under stressful and extraordinary settings. Stone’s take on the world can be observed at his personal website and blog, http://www.thomascstone.com.
