Hello folks. My name is Thomas C. Stone and I practice the subtle art of writing. A different way of putting it might be to say my search for a sane, truth-bound, stream of thought that can be set to grammar has been a lifelong pursuit. How did I ever get this way? Well, I developed a fascination for the written word early in life. As a student, I studied writing, classical literature, philosophy, linguistics, and computer science. To support my writing, I've worked as a teacher, technical writer, systems analyst, martial arts instructor, and various other odd jobs. Lots of various other jobs. Additionally, I have completed twenty books, primarily in the science fiction genre. By my own admission, I am most interested in the realistic interaction of characters under stressful and extraordinary settings.

I'll be honest with you, writing for a living is not a very smart career choice. For one thing, you should know more than just grammar if you're going to be a writer; otherwise, you're simply making a public spectacle of yourself. One could aspire to a great number of noble occupations and gain fortune and fame easier than from the modest scribblings of the fiction writer. Down in the Southern states, we have a phrase for it. One is called into it, so we say, as if the Lord compels the writer to write. But the truth is, it can be just as much of a curse as a blessing and achieving even modest success can be similar to scaling Everest. What keeps me going? I have to do this. I can't do anything else anymore. I've burnt all my bridges. I can still see the light from the fires."

Thomas C. Stone currently lives in a box with a northern exposure. He still maintains the same bunch of cats and his dog Mae now shares Tom's attention with Cowboy, a hyperactive Catahouli.
