Thom Gabrukiewicz is both a communicator and a writer of flash fiction. Most of what he writes is kind of dark, with occasional forays into the light. He’s a winner of some awards and has covered two Winter Olympics for Scripps Howard News Service. He’s also written a guidebook about hiking with dogs. He’s fiercely loyal and has a malevolent side that seems to visit less and less often. He’s both a hopeless romantic and a realist. He's currently working on community wellness issues in Wyoming.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
There's nothing I've ever wanted to do, or wanted to be, than be a writer. I chose the life of a journalist, but always continued to writer short fiction. As my body of works grew, I decided to put the Troublemaker collection together.
