Tom Conlan lives, writes, and tends his grape vines at Blackcreek Farm in the highlands of Northern Michigan. He has captained a Coast Guard Cutter, sailed the world's lakes and oceans, and now searches for the elusive brook trout in backwater streams.
His lyrical story collection My Journey Begins Where the Road Ends is now available to bookstores and other retailers.
Tom's work has appeared in Vine Leaves Literary Journal, Tulip Tree Review, in the anthology The Water Holds No Scars, and in QU Literary Review. His work was chosen as a finalist for the the Annie Dillard Prize in the Bellingham Review.
Tom attended the Iowa's Writer's Workshop, holds a Master of Fine Arts from Queens University of Charlotte, and a Master of Science from the US Naval Postgraduate School in Monterrey, California.
