Hi there, I’m Tom.
Greetings from West Dundee, IL!
I’m Tom Dell’Aringa, an American Science Fiction writer. I write fun, engaging, character-driven stories that have heart.
I’ve had a serious bug for reading and creating since I was a kid. Tolkien changed my life, and science fiction writers like C.J. Cherryh and James P. Hogan made me think about what the future could be like.
I’ve spent much of my professional life in the creative endeavors of graphic and software design (where I continue to work today). In 2008, I began creating graphic novels and successfully crowdfunded two of them.
But I realized I really wanted to get back to writing. With many thanks to Stephen King’s book On Writing, I finished my first full-length novel Blanchland Blues – a fun romp across the galaxy where one man tries to find his redemption.
