Thomas A. Mays (Tom) is an 18-years-and-counting veteran of the US Navy, working as an officer in the surface fleet aboard destroyers and amphibious ships, as well as teaching and assisting with research into electromagnetic weapons and ballistic missile defense. He has two degrees in applied physics, but his passion is writing (he tries not to let what he actually knows get in the way of telling a good story). The author of several short stories in both print and online magazines, Tom usually lives wherever the Navy tells him to, making a home with his lovely wife, three beautiful kids, and an insane Hawaiian mutt.

The Mutineer's Daughter by Chris  Kennedy
"This is a space opera, but also a coming of age story. Benno is a sailor in the Alliance navy, as they attack the Terran Union forces in a bid to finally drive them from Alliance space. Mio, his daughter, is 15, and wants to leave Adelaide, the plane" Read more of this review »
A Sword Into Darkness by Thomas A. Mays
"Wow!

If you like SciFi this one's for you. Also space battle. But most important is human interaction. Character development is not left out in favor of "flash". Good read. Lots of fun. Thank you, Mr. Mays."
A Sword Into Darkness by Thomas A. Mays
"I don't normally read hard science fiction, but I decided to give this one a shot. I regret nothing.

Without giving away the plot of the story, if you take one part Elon Musk, one part General Mattis (when he was younger) and two big helpings of Apple" Read more of this review »
