Thomas Fenske currently lives in North Carolina but he was born and raised in Texas, and his native Texan roots run deep.
He's braved long stretches of endless Texas highways in search of the best Chicken-Fried Steak, Chili, Texas BBQ, and Tex-Mex food. He's hiked west Texas mountains, canoed rapids on the Guadalupe River, suffered through waves of mosquitoes in The Big Thicket, and rafted the Rio Grande. He's blistered in the heat of the long Texas summers, endured hurricanes, ice storms, hail, wind, and floods. He has even ridden across ranchland looking for a lost "little dogie" ... how many Texans can say they did that?
Why did he leave the Lone Star State? Well, one must do many strange things to better provide for a family.
He and his lovely wife of thirty-plus years currently share their home with a dog and nine cats. Somehow, he still manages to write amidst the chaos.
