Today on The American Vision I present my special guest … T. H. Martin
Tom Martin was born in the small town of Salinas California on November 8, 1942. He grew up in Snohomish, WA, a small farming community with logging and fishing as well. Tom attended elementary and high school in Snohomish, graduating in 1961.
Tom enlisted into the United States Marine Corps and received his boot training in San Diego and ITR at Camp Pendleton. After his initial training, he was sent to NAS Millington, Tennessee for aviation electronics school. In October of 1962, he was assigned to HMM-262 at Marine Air Group 26 in Jacksonville NC. He deployed twice aboard ship for European and Caribbean cruises. He also served two tours at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
In 1965 Tom received an honorable discharge in 1965 and returned to school to earn his diploma in electronic communication, television and radar. He worked for Pacific NW Bell Telephone Company and was promoted to supervision. He retired in 1990 from US West.
Tom accepted an offer from McCaw Cellular to convert their air-to-ground cellular sites from Analog to digital transmission. He was initially hired as a contractor and then as a field engineer for several western states. AT&T purchased McCaw Cellular which caused Tom to retire a second time. He and his wife Cathie sold their small six-acre farm in Snohomish and moved to Surprise, Arizona, where they currently reside.
Tom began writing in 2012. His first novel, The Last Flower, was inspired while he was hiking near his home at the White Tank Mountains. It was late spring; the cacti had finished blooming and only the blossom pods remained. As he walked over the well-trodden trail he began to fantasize about a poor, young, Mexican lad searching for flowers for his mother’s grave. To Tom’s surprise, he saw a large saguaro cactus with its brilliant, white flowers and their yellow centers coming into view. Yom thought then, THE LAST FLOWER would be the title of his story. He returned home and began writing. He hasn’t stopped since, and to date has published five books. The Last Flower and Johnson House Mystery were first released in February of 2015. The Storyteller and Gold Star Mother were released in 2016. His fifth book, Journeys, is a compilation of seven short stories. It was released on June 30, 2017.
Tom enjoys personally signing his books which can be ordered directly by writing to Thomas Martin at [email protected]
His books are also available as eBooks on Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.
