This is Tom's third book, but first sci-fi/mystery book. "Fiction is fun," Tom says. "In non-fiction, you just describe the characters, which may be boring as heck. In fiction, you spend so much time making the character's seem real. But some end up being as boring as heck too. But it's your choice" In regards to this book, "I left the end hanging a bit, because I enjoyed it so much, I want to write a sequel." Tom has also written two previous books: "I'm Cold, Put on a Sweater", and "Cellophane".
