Thomas Smith is an award-winning writer, newspaper reporter, TV news producer, playwright and essayist. His published articles, short stories, essays, celebrity profiles, and travel writing articles appear in numerous books, magazines, journals and multi-media outlets including: Barbour Publishing, Adams Media, Group Publishing, Pocket Books, BarCharts Publishing, The PPI Group, Taberah Press, Tor Books, Barnes and Noble Books, Borderlands Press, and Zondervan Publishing.
He was selected as part of the writing team (including Rick Warren, Chuck Colson, Lee Strobel and Ravi Zacharias) to Create Zondervan’s New Men’s Devotional Bible. He is a three-time American Christian Writers Association Writer of the Year. Thomas writes under his own name and also works as a ghostwriter.
Thomas has been a joke writer for Joan Rivers and a comedy writer for The Steve & Kathy Show (Emmy winning Christian TV variety show). His novel, Something Stirs, was one of (if not the) first haunted house novels for the Christian market.
Interesting Fact: Thomas may be the only writer to be included in projects with Stephen King and the Rev. Rick Warren at the same time.
Born in 1958, he is considerably younger than many people born the same year. And with the exception of publishing-related bios and social media pages, he very seldom refers to himself in the third person.
