Robert T. (Tommy) Williams was born in Indiana on June 7, 1949. At the age of seven, his family moved to Venice Beach, California. He has lived the majority of his life in Southern California, except for a period of 18 years, when he lived in Northern Kentucky.
Tommy earned his Bachelor of Arts in biblical studies and psychology, from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. He obtained his Masters degree in Social Work from the University of Southern California. He spent his career as a Social Worker working with children and families both in the home and in the community. The last five years of his career he worked as a drug and alcohol counselor.
His creative expression has included, acting, dancing, singing, drawing, painting, and writing. He published his first book, “Leaves of the Heart,” which is a collection of poetry and prose, in 2013. His second book, Star Shiner, was published in print in 2016, and in ebook in 2017. It is a fully illustrated childrens book about the Christmas Star, which has also been published in Spanish. His third book, “Little Mo’s Mud Pies,” which was published in May 2018.
Currently he lives in San Diego with his wife Sherry. They have 8 children from combined marriages, and seven grandchildren.
Since graduating from Pepperdine he has been actively involved with the local church. Being involved with a local body of believers has always been his passion.
Following graduating from the University of Southern California, at the age of 40, he was diagnosed with Bi-Polar disorder. Living with Bi-Polar disorder, and having it untreated his entire adult life, created a lot of suffering and destruction in both his personal, and professional life. Throughout his career that experience helped him in reaching out to others suffering with mental illness, and various types of addictions.
It is his hope and prayer that his books will be an encouragement to everyone who read them. Tommy has an outreach called, “Mercy for Today.” It is his desire to provide people with three things: encouragement for today, hope for tomorrow, and a trust in God for the future.
