A retired associate electrical engineer, Tom enjoyed a long career designing and building automated manufacturing and robotic systems - a much more creative task than most may realize. He still holds the necessary registrations to work within that field; but, now spends most of his time writing.
He is the father of three successful men, each a wonder in his own right; and, a grandfather of four incredible grandchildren. His wife, Tanis, was the love of his life, when they married; and, still is today. She maintains the most incredible restraint and patience; when, he is obsessing in his creative mode. Though he is close to all his boys and their families, his oldest son Tyler is the graphic artist responsible for the cover illustration.
Tom was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus (SLE) several decades ago; but, he's never let its insidious nature interfere with work or creativity. He says that; along with the treatments available, a positive attitude is the best medicine.
Righteous Reign is his first published fictional book; though he has copyright on other specialized technical works. Righteous Reign was a labor of love; taking enough time to write, that; the space opera area of Sci-Fi, may no longer be in vogue; as, it goes to publication, in February 2016. But, it is still a work that should be seen.
Much of the time involved was devoted to research. He always says; he's determined to make his stories authentic by making the science fiction grounded in real science; as, we understand it, today. In addition, the military nature of the stories made it necessary to understand today's armed forces; and, extrapolate to envision where they would be in two hundred years. His own military experience was too distant to draw on.
The sequel should be finished sometime in the same year; but, will be more of an actioner. It will establish "Righteous" as a series.
