Meet the Author

Thomas F. Lee was born 02/10/1974 in the state of New Jersey. He grew up with a love of comic books, horror movies, and far-fetched tales. His passions, in addition to writing, include playing music and drawing, both of which he has been doing for over 20 years. He graduated from Montclair State University with a Bachelor's degree in English with a focus on creative writing and the translation of fiction to film. "The Maker", the intense character driven werewolf story, is Lee's first novel. The book was born out of many summers spent at his uncle's farm in Nova Scotia, where the author would gaze into the deep forests surrounding the property imagining what might be out there. Lee's primary goal in his work is to feed a reader's need to get lost in a story, to keep them awake long into the night until they find out, "what happens next".

    I really enjoyed this book. And, I think that if anything in the synopsis catches your attention (werewolf curse, a single protagonist unraveling the mysteries of family/small town history/relationships/secrets), then you will enjoy this book as well.

    I was impressed, and frankly found this book to be much better than I was expecting it to be. Due to its subject matter (werewolves), its setting (New England/Eastern Canada), and its tone (conversational/conspiratorial), this book felt to me like much of early Stephen King's work, especially his Castle Rock stories like Needful Things and his less gore- and shock- horror fare like The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon. Also, the accessibility and ease-of-reading of the author's writing reminded me of John Scalzi novels such as Old Man's War and Fuzzy Nation. Finally, and I invoke this last with some trepidation, the author's take on werewolves reminded me a bit of Stephanie Meyer's take on vampires in the Twilight books. By this I mean that in The Maker, Lee presents werewolves that evoke the classic werewolves of stories and films, but puts enough of a spin on them to make them his own creations, and not just a re-tread of what we've read before. (Understand, there is none of the pining teen angst present in Meyer's work - this book has none of that.)

    Again, I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed reading this book. A short, quick, fun read that adds to the genre. I eagerly anticipate more from this author.
