Thomas S. Gunther loves horror, the macabre, and the absurd. While he has a wide range of reading interests, his published writing dwells in this realm. Always a late bloomer–the daydreamer, the fool–he is still pursuing a degree in education while he scratches out a living as a copywriter and another fruitless gig. Today Thomas lives with his wife in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Their first year in the city saw the deaths of both their beloved cats, but today they are raising a puppy (holy terror from hell, please help us), as well as their youngest grandson, which makes for some interesting trips to school and back! Like most writers, Thomas was inspired by the greats. His published stories may even, from time to time, reflect elements of Clive Barker, Harlan Ellison, Stephen King, and Jack London (at least he likes to think so). He is currently working on a collection of short horror stories to be published under the title, Mumbling Darkly, as well as several other projects. He hopes you enjoy his stories, and will always look forward to new ones.
