Thomas Chase Bio
Thomas Chase was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, and graduated from Melvindale High School in 1968. He moved to Grand Rapids, Minnesota, after serving a term in the Air Force. He worked thirty years in the paper business, creating short stories in his spare time, and then retired to concentrate his efforts full time on his true love, the novel.
Chase began by creating numerous short stories in assorted genres, which he is now in the process of compiling into a collection for book form. It was through this effort that he discovered his flair for science fiction. Stargazer The Early Days is his debut novel in the Stargazer series. Others will follow; edits and rewrites are in process. In this genre, he draws inspiration from such influential authors as, Isaac Asimov, J.R.R. Tolkien, Terry Brooks, and Robert Jordon. His expertise is further enhanced by his first-hand experience with UFOs while in the Air Force where he was a Weapons Director Tech, a position that required him on more than one occasion to scrambled F-4 interceptors in an attempt to search out and to identify unknowns appearing in our friendly skies. Those incidences taught him to explore the probability that we are indeed not alone and sparked an ever growing curiosity
His hope for his work is simple—that his writing gives you pleasure, and perhaps, inspires his two sons, Ryan and Joel, to follow their dreams as he has.
