Thomas H. Cook was born in Ft. Payne, Alabama in 1947.
He received a Bachelor of Arts in English and philosophy
from Georgia State College in 1969, and advanced degrees
in American history from Hunter College (1972) and Columbia
University of New York (1976). He has had several careers
including that of an advertising executive for U. S.Industrial
Chemicals, a clerk/typist for the Association for Help
of Retarded Adults, an English and history teacher at
Dekalb Community College, Clarkston, Georgia, and a book
review editor for The Atlantic Monthly. Since 1981, he
has devoted himself to a full time writing career.
Cook's crime thrillers are compelling
tales written with great lyrical beauty. He views his
crime novels as a means of financing his literary works.
In 1996, he won the Edgar Allan Poe award for The
Chatham School Affair.
Into the Web is Cook's next
novel. He makes his home with his wife Susan Terner
(a radio writer) and their daughter Justine in New York
