VJ Books Presents Author Tom Young!

Authr Thomas W. Young

Tom Young (born 1962 in Raleigh, North Carolina) is an American novelist. He is known primarily as the author of the military thrillers. Young served in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars with the West Virginia Air National Guard. Young's military experience inspired his debut novel, The Mullah's Storm, which garnered positive reviews.

Young received BA and MA degrees in Mass Communications from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and he worked as a writer, editor, and newsroom supervisor for the broadcast division of the Associated Press for ten years.

During his time at AP, Young joined the Air National Guard, where he served as a flight engineer (logging nearly 5000 hours) on the C-130 Hercules and later on the C-5 Galaxy. He has also flown combat missions to Bosnia, Kosovo, Latin America, the horn of Africa, and the Far East. Young retired from the Air National Guard in June 2013.

Since 2010, Young has written a series of military procedurals that dramatize modern combat operations. He previously focused on nonfiction.
