Thomas Gaffney (he/him) grew up in Philadelphia and started writing as a kid. He fell in love with horror while reading a beat-up copy of Stephen King’s IT. Much like Henry Bemis in the Twilight Zone episode “Time Enough at Last,” Gaffney considers himself “a bookish little man whose passion is the printed page” and has been reading and writing ever since. His first collection of short stories, Stranger Things Have Happened, was won numerous awards. Gaffney currently lives in Pittsburgh and is taking classes toward a Creative Writing degree at SNHU. He has recently joined the Horror Writers Association.
