Tom Edwards grew up on the banks of the Coosa River in Shelby County, Alabama. Number two son in a family of six children, he married young and started his own family as so many others in this area had also done. His first taste of writing came at the age of sixteen but was soon set aside to make way for a career as a carpenter to support his new family. After thirty-four years in the building industry, he has picked up his pen once again.
