My bio below:
Thomas "Tom" Nevins was born in Brooklyn, NY, where he still lives with his wife and three daughters. As a teenager he became interested in writing after hearing the lyrics of Bob Dylan and the Beatles. After High School, Nevins worked, traveled through Europe; Holland, England, Ireland, Scotland, Norway and across the U.S. before he attended the New York University School of Continuing Education. In 1974 he enrolled in College of Staten Island, a division of City University System, where he was lucky enough to not only meet his wife, Debbie, but to study under John Shawcross, Armand Schwerener, and Herbert Leibowitz, who sponsored Nevins with a working scholarship to the Bread Loaf Writers Conference in 1977. Upon graduation into a recessed economy, he found it difficult to land a job; one day he walked into Doubleday Bookshops in Manhattan to enquire about employment opportunities. They hired him, and from sales clerk he rose to assistant manager, to manager, to buyer, to sales representative, to national account manager, and to the author of THE AGE OF THE CONGLOMERATES. When he is not writing or working for Random House, he is watching the Mets (groaning is more like it), or playing the drums in his basement. He likes his rock and roll loud, simple and with a beat, and if it’s rebellious, or broken hearted, all the better. He lives with two teachers and great daughters who help keep him busy and keep it real. It seems, at all times, he has a large cup of coffee on hand and a song in his heart.
