Thomas Henry Pope gives the landscapes in his novels as much agency to influence events as he does to his characters. His narrative style draws on his passions of journalism, theater, songwriting and teaching. And his world travels provide grist for his characters and stories.
After dropping out of Stanford, he worked in California’s vineyards and then in Hollywood. He has written for HuffPost, built timber frame houses and barns, repaired motorcycles, run a real estate company, and served as an EMT. He knows the freedom and trials of living off the grid and growing his own food. The counterbalance to his peripatetic adventures is his home in Vermont, which has his heart.
