About the Author

Thomas Nahra's childhood roots are in a small village in Lebanon. His youth was tranquil and happy, surrounded by relatives and friends. The literary awakening began with a grandfather, Joseph Nahra, who delighted in the oral tradition of story telling, reciting poetry and recounting literary plotlines.

Twelve years old when World War II ended Thomas, his younger brother Ralph, and their mother were able to join their father in America. The father took them to live in Cleveland, Ohio where he had bought a beverage store in a multi-racial neighborhood. A classic American melting pot of ethnic and cultural harmonics.

Fascinated by the English language, Thomas immersed himself in a broad mix of literature of all genres, a lifelong passion he never surrendered. A graduate of John Carroll University with a major in Social Science and Business Administration, he made a 25-year career as a vocational rehabilitation supervisor with the State of Ohio working with the disabled, training and helping them find employment.

He also launched an accounting practice, teaching new immigrants how to start a business and explaining the nation's tax laws. His reading continued unabated and for more than 40 year he wrote poetry, plays and short stories. Thomas Nahra has never published. Until now.
