About the Author

When I was growing up, I always enjoyed reading and telling stories, whether they were fiction or non-fiction. I remember a writing exercise we were given once a week in grammar school. We were to take a picture from a magazine, paste it on a piece of paper, and then underneath it we were to write about what was happening or how we felt about what was going on in the photograph. We were to describe the activity or setting within the photo using all of our senses. I enjoyed that exercise immensely and still employ the concept in my writing today when I see a scene in my head. 

I hope you will join me on another adventure in one of my books. Please contact me through my website if you'd like to ask a question or make a comment. And if you liked the book you just read, please do me a big favor and leave a review so others can appreciate it as well. Hope to hear from you soon. You can keep up to date on my latest work by checking out my website at tomwalshbooks.com Thank you for your support.

My Story

All four of my grandparents emigrated from Western Ireland to the U.S.   Three came from County Galway and one from County Clare where the Gaelic language and story telling are rich Irish tradition.  There was a time when books were banned and some took to memorizing them so they could continue to share the stories around peat fires.  I guess it's in my blood to share stories so I hope you'll continue my family's tradition and share mine.
