ABOUT THE AUTHOR OF Stalking Los Angeles.
Growing up in the boondocks of Northern Minnesota, Tom dreamed of becoming a game warden. He loved the woods and vowed he’d never sit behind a desk working in an office. He left home, moved to New York and started his career in a cubicle as an advertising copywriter.
After a lifetime in business and living in the Northeast, the journey of a wild animal captivated him. A young male mountain lion travelled 1700 miles from South Dakota to Connecticut in search of a mate. He was killed on a highway not far from Tom’s home. Soon after the author moved to Santa Monica, California, another mountain lion was killed by police a few blocks from his new home, on Tom’s birthday.
The author’s love and respect for wild animals was re-kindled. At least he could now write about them. So Tom wrote this story to inspire young (and older) people to not give up on their dreams.
NOTE: The author will be donating 25% of his book royalties to wildlife conservation.
