How did a boy that hated to read and write end up putting all of his passion into writing? That’s the story of Tom Tancin



Tom didn’t live the typical life of a writer. He HATED to write---and read---throughout elementary and middle school. He never imagined growing up to spend every waking minute thinking about writing or devouring the latest young adult novel. And it wasn’t due to lack of effort on his parents’ part. His mother was--and still is--an avid reader and read to Tom every chance she had. But he wouldn’t have any of it. That’s not to say that Tom didn’t have a vivid imagination--he most certainly did, he just didn’t want to use it to write.

“Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself.”
