Author: Tom Ahern

Tom Ahern's literary career peaked abruptly in 1984 when the New York Times said a few nice things about his first full book of short stories. He graduated from Brown University with a MA in Creative Writing, and for more than three decades now, he's paid his bills as a successful commercial copywriter. Then he began writing "how-to- improve" books that became industry standards: his 7th fundraising book will appear in 2019. In 2016, the New York Times mentioned Ahern again: "Tom Ahern...is one of the country's most sought-after creators of fund- raising messages." Ahern's most recent book of literary nonfiction is MY FATHER'S WAR STORIES, AS TOLD BY TOYS: A CHILD'S HISTORY OF WORLD WAR II (Pelekinesis, 2019). This is his first non-how-to-improve book in quite some time.
