Thomas Gaffney was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA. He survived 12 years of Catholic school before embarking on several careers: computer programmer, barista, and account manager. Much like Henry Bemis in the Twilight Zone episode 'Time Enough at Last', Tom considers himself a bookish little whose passion is the printed page. He fell in love with books and the idea of writing while reading an old, beat-up copy of Stephen King’s IT. He currently lives in the Philly suburbs and spends too much time and money in random coffee shops.
