Thomas Turrentine


Hello everyone. I'm Thomas Turrentine. I've published two books: Remembering the Wind, a collection of short stories of various genres; and a literary novel, Falling into the Stars. They are available both as Kindle eBooks and as paperbacks.

I grew up in New Mexico and you'll read quite a bit about that country in my stories. I've been in the Navy a couple of times (flying around looking at the ocean), worked as a commercial jet flight training instructor in the US and internationally, and worked on various aerospace technical projects; aspects of those experiences appear in some of the stories.

These days, in addition to my writing, I am teaching myself classical guitar, I read a lot, study astronomy and several other subjects, work on restoring an historic steam locomotive, wander around the outback here in the southwestern US, and occasionally do a little work on a remote cattle ranch.
