T. Mason Gilbert is a humorist by nature. Although he has traveled in many different (and sometimes opposite) fields of endeavor, his past is not checkered. It is more of a chessboard, full of strange and unusual strategies—some worked and some failed, but it was never dull.
Before writing novels, he had written jokes for other stand-up comedians, screenplays, and sitcoms. At one time, he was a sidekick for a well-known Los Angeles radio DJ doing impressions, and producing a live show for the DJ at the Laugh Factory. He also did voiceovers for Premier Radio Network and was one of ten finalists for the new Mickey Mouse voice in 2009.
His first novel, "The Sacrifist," is an adventure about the hunt for a yeti that is killing climbers in the Himalaya. His second book will be a compilation of his short stories which span all genres. Another book planned for release in October 2016 is a zombie novel which he says will be one of the most original zombie ideas ever. He lives with his wife of 37 years in Orange County, California.
