About this author

Gattaca is in my top 5 favorite movies. It's an intellectual film that forces you to think and reconsider your opinions.

But sometimes I don't want to watch Gattaca. Sometimes I want to watch Independence Day. Or Jurassic Park. Or, GI Joe 2: Retaliation. There, I said it. I loved GI Joe 2. Sometimes you just want to sit back, turn on the TV, and watch explosions for 2 hours. And that's okay. Other times you want to watch Gattaca.

I write the Friday-night-action-movie-books that I want to read. I call them: Action-packed action books of action.

Thanks for checking them out.

Tom Wright lives in Austin, TX with his wife, Molly, and her dog, Bear, and his dog, Zoe. Zoe is a million times better than Bear.

They are expecting their first child, and To...more

I’ll get back to business, but first:

I think it was the Wells brothers' podcast the quoted: Just because a story is about something doesn't make it good.

For instance, just because it's about vampires, doesn't make it good.

And yet, if you give me something with superpowers, I'm going to...more

"Can't wait to see your review, especially if I've finished the book by then! "
"I need to read this series. I was impressed by his MHI series, so hopefully I have just as good a time here. "
"Maybe I'm remembering the series more than just the book, because all I can remember is the action.

Then again, I've never really been a gun-guy. So ma...more

I used her spreadsheet method of tracking my writing. Now I have hard data to help me see where I get stuck, where I write my best, etc.

Worth it for that alone.
Tom Wright made a comment on Ryan S’s review of Worm
"If I start Pact, it will probably be much later when the story is totally finished. It was nice to read Worm without waiting on updates. "

Apex Rising by Tom    Wright
" Apex Rising describes itself as a popcorn fantasy. I'm not entirely sure that this classification is necessary, but the gist is that it's the fantasy equivalent of an action movie.

The problem with that self-assessment is that Sword and Sorcery and... " Read more of this review »
