TJ is a veteran of the US Air Force. He spent many days in the New Mexico desert during his youth. He has been married over thirty one years and is a father of three: two boys, one girl. In his life he has been a janitor, a carpenter, a diesel mechanic, an aircraft technician, a student, a teacher, and now a writer. His love of comics and science fiction/fantasy literature began when he was in sixth grade. This book marks the beginning of what he hopes to be a career in writing.

He coached Varsity Men's' Soccer team and has coached wrestling. TJ is an avid runner, bicyclist, and swimmer. He holds a federal firearms license, has built multiple motorcycles from scratch, and he competes in triathlons, marathons, and Ironman races, not the mention the Odd Zombie Run or Savage Race. TJ is a barefoot runner, yes that's right he runs with no shoes. That is a whole story that is yet to be written. He can be seen in races wearing his kilt with no shoes to honor his Scottish ancestry. He acted a the School's production of Beauty and the Beast as Maurice, Belle's Father. He sings in a blue grass Gospel quartet and can be heard belting out eighties tunes in the hallways of the school. He has traveled to Turkey, Spain, Ireland, Germany, and Portugal.
He also plays Piano, Banjo, Trombone, Tuba and Baritone...some better than others.
