At the age of thirteen he read his first novel, Dune, by Frank Herbert. That was the spark that ignited his passion for reading. It was the popular fantasy Dragonlance novels by Tracy Hickman and Margaret Weis which cemented his love of fantasy. He grew up devouring those heroic tales of swords and sorcery and like so many others, always wanted to add a little of himself to the genre. He feels if even one person reads his work and experiences that seed of excitement he still experiences from a good read, it will all have been worth it. Thomas currently resides, and draws much of his inspiration from, North Yorkshire, England.
