About Author:

Tom Stanton

Dear Readers I feel fortunate to have been writing professionally since age 18, beginning back in the final year of Jimmy Carter s presidency, when I sported a poorly executed, Peter Frampton inspired perm Decades on, my hair is gone, but writing remains central to my life I ve been a reporter, editor, publisher and, recently, an author and journalism professor Go University of Detroit Mercy Titans If you know me for my books, it s likely for the Tiger Stadium memoir The Final Season, the Quill Award finalist Ty and The Babe or the feverishly publicized Hank Aaron and the Home Run That Changed America My forthcoming book is Terror in the City of Champions, a true story set in mid 1930s Detroit.OK, enough of the formal stuff Some things you might be interested to know Elton John s music has been a big part of my life since Bennie and the Jets, which is no excuse for accidentally setting off one of his legendary tantrums backstage one evening My fault I drink too many Tim Hortons Ice Caps The three biggest thrills to come my way due to book writing going with El Leonard to a Detroit Tigers baseball game, hearing Alec Baldwin read an excerpt from one of my books on television and receiving an unexpected phone call from one of my favorite authors, Pat Conroy My eternally kind wife and I care for four feral cats Pumpkin, Sox, Frisco and Panther who dictate our schedule When I travel, I inevitably wind up searching out bookstores and libraries We probably have that in common One of my uncles, Edward Stanton, was a photographer in Detroit in the 1930s, and his shots of black Detroit can be found here reuther.wayne image tid 1983
