Tom grew up in Jersey. On streets that show no mercy. Like the sun on a Hershey. Then he got a degree. Magna cum laude. From Rutgers. University.

After college, he worked in NYC as an Analyst & Assistant VP. But had to flee. Had to pursue the writing dreams he harbored. As life rocked him from port to starboard.

Along the way, Tom got an MFA from UCLA. Sold some projects, got into the WGA. So he's doing okay. Especially because of his beautiful bae. And their two babes.

Tom’s now home in the South Bay. Where he runs a tutoring organization. Educating the next generation.

He hopes his writing can expand the conversation.

First-person narration with a unique voice/perspective. Too long of a middle but a strong start and finish with a lot to say on American racial history without being preachy thanks to a well-designed and well paid-off plot.
