About Thomas Neviaser

A retired orthopedic surgeon who has traded in his knife for a word processor. Dr. Neviaser has authored over 40 peer reviewed medical articles, several chapters in orthopedic text books, and participated in multiple national and international conferences and seminars.


Since retiring, he was written one novel, three non-fiction works and has finished his second novel, THE MYSTERY OF FLIGHT 2222, to be published in July 25, 2018: Mystery/suspense/thriller:
Two strangers meet while seated together on a long distance air flight. The more seasoned of the two creates a game to pass the time. They choose seven passengers and proceed to guess their names, age, occupation, marital status, and personality. Later, they are informed of severe mechanical problems disabling the plane, leading to a crash into the sea. They survive along with only seven other passengers, incredibly the seven people from their game. The subsequent prolonged and horrifying adventure in a raft presents many obstacles to their survival including sharks, severe weather, death, hunger, thirst, declining physical and mental health, paranoia, and pirates of the high seas. Their long awaited rescue from the ravages of the sea is just the beginning of their trip to Hell and back.

He is a columnist for the Culpeper Times, former columnist for the Culpeper Star-Exponent, blogger, and speaker.

1. YOU DEAR SWEET MAN: Would you give up your life to enter an unknown world just to eat a hamburger? A fast-food company creates the Ultimate Perfect Ad, a 3D form of motion with a model having an evil agenda. Her telepathic ability has special powers over men, utilizing a simple phrase, “You dear, sweet man." Her plan jeopardizes a blue collar worker's life as he realizes that advertising is not as glamorous as it seems and that his relationship with the woman's ultra-ego has defined his destiny from which he may never escape.
