Tom Larsen was a journeyman printer for twenty-five years before scrapping it all for the writer's life.
His work has appeared in Newsday, New Millennium Writing, Philadelphia Stories Magazine, Best American Mystery Stories and the LA Review. His first novel FLAWED was published in 2008.
Tom and his wife Andree spent ten years in the Pennsport section of South Philadelphia, home to Mummers, Flyers, and that screw you attitude that made the city great.
The experience proved invaluable in crafting characters. "For a writer, Pennsport is a casting gold mine. No pretense, no rhetoric, just real people saying what they mean."
