Thomas Henry Pope – The Journey
Navigating Upstream in Rivers of Corruption
Tom caught the bug for fiction listening to his father read the classics in a voice that captured the full gamut of humanity struggling with passion and its consequences. Acutely aware of his destiny with novels, he first traveled the parallel universe of songwriting, learning about the economy and potency of lines. Along the way he has been a builder, an EMT, an actor, a journalist, a teacher, a farmer, a coach and a motorcycle mechanic.
Be they heroes or bit players, be they in a thriller setting, on a quest, or mired in conundrums favored by literary fiction, his characters encounter pressures that worry open the flaws in their worldviews. Where they go next depends on whether it is light or floodwaters that pour though the cracks and whether ambition helps or hinders them.
He lives in California where the Coastal Redwoods meet heritage grasslands.
