He's Mixed Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Love & Spirituality into This Thing Called Life - And Then Made Art out of It to Send a Message of Hope & Truth . . .
However, a harmless hitchhiking jaunt to Las Vegas found him stripped of his scholarship and back home with his parents in late 1969. His plans to play in the N.B.A. had been thwarted.
Tommy’s exceptional athletic abilities and sharp tongue were intriguing on the surface; however, these interesting qualities masked a deep rooted uncertainty he had about himself and life. This lack of uncertainty paved the way for a road that appeared before him in the early 70’s that he could not ignore.
After meeting someone that Tommy looked up to and held in high regard, he aspired to reach for a greater integrity and personal happiness he saw in his new friend.
He continued to study any and all information regarding his spiritual side, and in the mid seventies on a lumpy mattress on the floor of a fellow hippie’s apartment in San Francisco Tommy found himself, without any forewarning or attempt on his part, outside of his body.
He was captured by the event and observed it for a few moments. He returned to his body unaware of the importance of the occurrence. Tommy had unexpectedly stumbled onto the mystery of this universe! The existence of the human spirit! He had luckily and abruptly discovered his own existence as a spirit separate and different than his body.
In 2011 he began a Science Fiction novel based on some of his understandings of life, intertwined with a perceptive view of earth’s existing political scene, wrapped in a compelling science fiction saga.
The result was “Soul Wars.”
This book is exciting and compelling; however Tommy’s rare understanding of the human spirit weaves its way throughout the book entertaining, intriguing and even haunting the reader.
Tommy lives in southern California with his beautiful wife, and son & daughter.
He is working on the next book in the “Soul Wars” series.
