About Thomas Rydder

Greetings, and thanks for stopping by. I'm a civil engineer in beautiful Charleston, SC, and recently decided to attempt writing fiction in the horror and suspense genres. On my site are links to helpful writing sites, book reviews, and someday soon, my books on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I'm married to a beautiful woman who manages to forgive me on a daily basis, and we have two dogs and two cats who all manage to be both mischievious and precious at the same time. In my spare time (which has decreased in size considerably), I also enjoy fishing, reading, genealogy, and watching my beloved Pittsburgh Steelers.
