Tom Fowler is a mystery and thriller writer. He was born and raised in Baltimore and, even though he now lives in the DC suburbs of Maryland, still considers Baltimore his home. His full-time job is in the field of computer security.
Even from a young age, Tom wanted to write. He was about seven or eight, so the stories were brief and awful. Among them was a “murder mystery” in which no one died (and, in fact, everyone recovered quite nicely in the hospital). In the intervening years, Tom has gotten over this problem with killing characters in stories.
Tom’s first series of books focuses on unconventional private investigator C.T. Ferguson. C.T. is a hacker who ends up as a detective because his wealthy parents make him get a job helping people. His other series stars former special operations soldier John Tyler, who can never quite settle into a career as a classic car mechanic. Between his college-bound daughter, managing his PTSD, and solving problems for people with the skills he learned in the army, Tyler has a lot on his plate.
Both series are set in and around Baltimore.
Tom Fowler writes stories featuring flawed heroes, action, and plenty of snark. He’s also a proud indie author who learned from a lot of smart people and is happy to pay it forward.
