Tom and his wife Dorothy live in Clarksboro, New Jersey. Tom is a retired systems engineer, a magician, a teacher and an ex-deacon in the Catholic Church.
As a deacon in the Catholic Church, Tom’s ability to simplify material carried over to scripture and religious education.
Now, Tom has turned his attention to writing and through his storytelling, he connects with his readers who, amidst their chaos and pain, their unpleasant and unexpected experiences, their loneliness and grieving, they can find glimmers of hope, faith, love and peace.
