Tom Bruno was born in New Jersey (Exit 3 of the Jersey Turnpike, to be precise!). An early reader, he planned his childhood activities around the weekly arrival of the county bookmobile and frequented every book store within half a day's ride of his three-speed bike.

Tom's bibliomania inevitably brought him to the Athens of America, where after a misguided attempt to become an astronaut at MIT he decided to complete his Bachelor's degree in Ancient Greek and Latin at Boston University and then his Master's degree in Library Science at Simmons College.

When he's not writing, Tom is a librarian, helping other people get their much-needed book fix!

Librarian Note: There is more than one author in the Goodreads database with this name.

Thanks, Sam, for your kind words and I'm sorry that I only just noticed this question now. As a matter of fact I am hoping to have a print edition of Confessions ready in time for the 10th anniversary of its release as an ebook (which will be April 2020). I'll be sure to make an announcement here and elsewhere as the time comes.

In the meantime I just launched a Patreon specifically to help me get this project and a print edition of the collected L is for Librarian anthology off the ground. You can check it out here: https://www.patreon.com/mroodja

Thanks again for letting me know how much you enjoyed my book. It means more than you can imagine! As far as a sequel is concerned, you can find a few short dispatches from Van d'Allamitri's fantasy book tour here: https://confessionsofagourmand.blogsp...(less)
