Tom Scanlan writer


Tom Scanlan is a dark fiction writer who lives outside of Boston and works full-time as a prison guard.

He received a degree in creative writing from Emerson College in 2012. Part of him expected the world to end back then (thanks Mayan calendar!), but no such thing happened, so he left the bunker and started writing short fiction and working on novels.

His influences include Clive Barker, Edgar Allan Poe, Philip K. Dick, and Cormac McCarthy.
