Tom Behr


Tom Behr is a management consultant specializing in global leadership development and sales strategies for multinational corporations. A small boat sailor since childhood, his love of novels of the sea began with Kenneth Roberts and C.S. Forrester and turned into addiction when he discovered Patrick O'Brian.

If you liked The Most Bold and Daring Act, you’ll want to look at his forthcoming full-length novel, Blood Brothers, set in America’s 1805 war against the Barbary Pirates.

Tom Behr divides his time between the 1730’s farmhouse in New Jersey that he and his wife JoAnn have been restoring for decades (in an act of love or madness)and a summer home in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.

He has two daughters, Mary Behr and Jenny Wilson, both sailors, a wonderful son-in-law, Jordan Wilson (of the Nathaniel Wilson sail maker family) and two delightful grandchildren, Maggie and Finn Wilson.

His prior publications include a book, The Tao of Sales: The Easy Way to Sell in Tough Times (published in English, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, and Russian) as well as numerous papers and magazine articles in professional journals.

He received a B.A. in English from Colgate University, a M.A. in American Literature from Middlebury College, and a Ph.D. from Princeton University in English Renaissance and 18th Century Literature.
