about tom meitner

I’ve loved reading books since I was a little kid grabbing the latest releases off of the big wooden barn shelf at the local library. But as an adult, I’ve grown to loathe most fiction: it’s slow, it’s tediously detailed, and it includes scenes that have no real bearing on the story at hand.

I wanted fiction that moved like a TV show. I wanted plots that moved, characters that could be defined without detailing every hair on their heads, and interesting story arcs. That’s why I started writing fiction.

Today, thousands of readers have downloaded my books. I hope you’re one of them.

I live in Germantown, WI, with my expecting wife and two young boys, who endlessly support my work.

I regularly post the musings and happenings going on in my life. They are my opinions and perspectives – get inside the head of a self-published author trying to make it. It’s not that scary, don’t worry. But I’ll try to keep it interesting.

(I really wanted the icon on the left to be a brain, but I couldn’t find a brain icon. So it’s a duck. Isn’t he cute?)
