Meet Tom


  • Tell us about your story:
    • What is the name of your book?
    • What genre is it?
      • Literary Fiction
    • When and where is your tale set?
      • New York City, and I’m playing piano at a little club in Hell’s Kitchen
  • Who are you?
    • What is your name?
      • I’m Tom
    • Are you a fictional or historical character?
      • I’m fictional. I tend to come in and out of people’s lives for a season.
    • What’s your role in the story – are you the protagonist or a supporting character?
      • I suppose you’d call me a supporting character. I help other folks understand their story, but I’m not always around to see how it ends. I’d like to see a happy ending or two before it’s all said and done.
    • Are you a human, animal, alien, robot, or something completely different?
      • I’m human. Still the piano man and always will be.
    • Do you consider yourself to be good, bad, or indifferent?  Would others agree with this assessment – why, or why not?
      • Well, everyone’s good in their own head, and I just hope I’ve given more to the people I’ve loved than I’ve taken from them. So yeah, I’d call myself a good man.
  • What do we need to know about you?
    • What is your personal goal?  I mean, what do you ultimately want?
      • Goals were for my younger days. I’m at peace now, doing what I love.
    • What is standing in your way?  What conflict(s) do you face?
      • Hoping my past, those so-called “goals” from my youth, don’t come back to haunt me.
    • Why is this goal important to you?  What’s your motivation?
      • Not many of us find peace. I’ve helped a few people find it and I like that. Charles, certainly. Cammie, maybe, though it’s too soon to tell.
    • If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be, and why?
      • To have appreciated the moments more, rather than always waiting for the next big thing, or the next experience. A moment is the only piece of time that’s actually real.
  • How do I get a copy of your book?
