At the age of 11, Thomas A. Fowler saw Jurassic Park. It was all nerdy as hell from there. Especially when he stuck around for the end credits and saw "Based on the novel by Michael Crichton." He went straight from the movie theater, walked down the mall to a Walden Books.

Thomas A. Fowler is the author of nerdy things. Starting in theater and film, he wrote and directed several plays. His one act, “Ways of the Beast,” received a UNC Nomination for Best Production. His feature film, “The Code: Legend of the Gamers,” screened at a few film festivals and is now available to stream on IMDb. While writing novels, he’s had short stories published by RuneWright Publishing and in Story of the Month Club, where he won the competition to be the featured author on the annual publication of the collected stories. He’s the author of the  

Writer’s Conquest: Establish a Brand where he took his experience and education in advertising to help authors market themselves.

That opened the door to multiple appearances at Denver Comic Con as well as several other conventions and specialty lectures for Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers in his home state of Colorado. He’s also released Shatter Your Image, an anthology of short stories and poems he edited and contributed to. The anthology proceeds go to Realize Your Beauty, a non-profit organization helping with eating disorder awareness and positive body image.

When he isn't writing, Fowler tries to be the best husband he can be and works to achieve his dream so he can prove to his daughters they can do anything they want in life. He also works as the Marketing Director for Spine Press + Post, a company providing publishing and marketing services to authors and publishers.
