Tom Scanlan lives outside of Boston with his wife, child, and rescued Dachshund Louie. He is a graduate of Emerson College and works as a Massachusetts Correction Officer. His writing explores the incomprehensible truths that lay dormant within and around us like strips of flesh clinging to the skeletons of our worm-addled ancestors. His short fiction has appeared in The Commonline Journal and Bone Parade. You can also find him on Facebook.
