Thomas A. Mays

     Author


Thomas A. Mays (Tom) is an 23-years-and-counting veteran of the US Navy, working as a Commander in the surface fleet aboard destroyers and amphibious ships, as well as teaching and assisting with research into electromagnetic weapons and ballistic missile defense. His current position is as the Commanding Officer of Assault Craft Unit TWO, leading a crew of 300 sailors, chiefs, and officers in operating the Navy's oldest operational platforms, 16 of the 135-foot Landing Craft Utility ship-to-shore connectors. He has two degrees in applied physics, but his passion is writing (he tries not to let what he actually knows get in the way of telling a good story). "The Mutineer's Daughter", part one of the In Revolution Born series with author Chris Kennedy was released in March, 2018. "A Sword Into Darkness" is his first published novel, but he is working on a sequel "Lancers Into The Light"(which he hopes to debut at LibertyCon!), has produced a collection of his shorts in "REMO", and has short stories appearing in numerous magazines and anthologies. Tom usually lives wherever the Navy tells him to (currently Virginia Beach, VA), making a for his three precocious/maddening kids, an insane Hawaiian mutt, and a hot, geeky girlfriend he doesn't deserve.
