Before he turned the ripe age of ten, Thomas Young traveled with his paternal grandmother to his uncle’s farm in southwest Georgia. There he spent hours sitting cross-legged on the front porch of his uncle’s house, enraptured by tales his family told. Those experiences instilled in him a deep love of stories, things that he yearned to write about. In 1996, when he retired from a career as a nurse, he followed his heart. He has been writing since.
He is an active member of the Carrollton Creative Writers Club, the Atlanta Writers Club, the Majorie Kinnan Rawlings Society, a past Program Chair for Sisters in Crime, Atlanta Chapter, and past member of The Bard Society of Jacksonville, Florida. He lives with his dog, October’s gift (called name, Toby), his two cats, Chloe and Felix, and other magical creatures, outside Carrollton, Georgia, surrounded by one of the world’s last enchanted forests.
