Tom was inspired to begin writing upon the birth of his son in 1992, sketching out a time-travel story about a father on a desperate mission to resurrect his only child by going into the past to prevent the terrorist act that killed him. Paradox Man is the working title of the novel, but as a single parent working full-time in the corporate world, Tom couldn’t spend much time writing: his leisure time for many years was spent coaching baseball, attending band concerts and going on Boy Scout campouts. Story ideas kept coming, however, and he vowed to spend more time writing as soon as the pace of his parental responsibilities slowed. True to his goal, Tom published his debut novella, The Last Shuttle, during his son’s first semester in college. Responding to reader demand and bolstered by winning an Honorable Mention award in L. Ron Hubbard’s Writers of the Future contest, Tom will be releasing the sequel, Sentinel, this Fall, after which he plans to finally finish and publish Paradox Man.
Tom’s natural curiosity about our world and our universe fuels many of his interests, including outdoor recreation, scuba diving, sailing, golfing, star-gazing, reading science fiction and collecting nautical antiques. He has served as an adult volunteer in Boy Scouts of America while his son Brandon was earning the rank of Eagle Scout, and is a certified trainer with Leave No Trace, an organization dedicated to outdoor ethics and conservation. Other leisure activities include domestic and international travel, and a never-ending list of home improvement projects.
Tom lives in Tomball, Texas, with his wife, Kim, who is a gourmet cook working on her first cookbook, and bonus son Thomas Wenglinski. His son Brandon is a junior at Baylor University. The Glover household includes two dogs, Layla and Sally, two very spoiled cats, Fiona and Godfrey, and numerous sea creatures swimming in Tom’s 180-gallon salt-water aquarium.
