Tom Howard, Author

Welcome!  I hope you are well and you are finding everything you're looking for.  I wanted to take a minute and tell you a bit about myself and my love of writing.

I've written a few love stories and even an inspirational novel about a family going through trying times, however, I found what I loved in writing supernatural thrillers. The one thing most all my novels have in common is a Christian undertone, which is pretty obvious in some areas of my novels. I try to get the message of God and Jesus across in all I do whether it be two people falling in love or a former hitman turned demon killer, because, for me, God is number one. I know and can say flat out, without God I would not be where I am or have the gift and love of writing.


When I was 10 years old, I began my career with single page detective stories, and over the years progressed to novels.  I owe it all to God, without Him, I would have no drive to put pen to paper (yes, I still write that way sometimes).  It was He who put me in the right place at the right time.  I remember clearly laying in front of the TV in our living room, watching a black and white commercial whose purpose was to inspire children to read and write. 

Let me set the scene...

It was a cool, crisp, Fall evening in New York.  The stars shown brightly accented perfectly by moon glow. The detective, a little girl, about the age of seven, was searching for her lost partner, a young boy of the same age.  She had received a tip he may be down by the docks, as the mob had gotten hold of him.  Speeding there as quickly as she could, she found a single wooden crate standing on the far edge of the dock underneath a lonely light.  Cautiously approaching, the young girl reached out and unlocked the crate to find...her partner, completely unharmed.

It wasn't too much, but it did the trick for me, and I've been writing ever since, with only three purposes: 1) to tell a good story, 2) to inspire others, and 3) in subtle and obvious ways, spread the good news of God.  These are what I love to do, and I hope you enjoy reading my novels as much as I love writing them.

Currently, I live in Martinsburg, WV with my beautiful wife Laurel and our two children Ian and Chloe, with our daughter, Eva, currently on the way.  And yes, those are the hands of Ian and Chloe on the cover of "Never Give Up"!
