Tom Deitz grew up in Young Harris, Georgia, a tiny college town in the north Georgia mountains that—by heritage or landscape— have inspired the setting for the majority of his novels. He holds BA and MA degrees in English from the University of Georgia, where he also worked as a library assistant in the Hargrett Rare Books and Manuscript Library until quitting in 1988 to become a fulltime writer. His interest in medieval literature, castles, and Celtic art led him to co-found the Athens, GA chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism, of which he is still sort of a member. A “fair-to-middlin” artist, Tom is also a frustrated architect and an automobile enthusiast (he has two non-running ’62 Lincolns, every Road & Track since 1959 but two, and over 900 unbuilt model cars). He also hunts every now and then, dabbles in theater at the local junior college, and plays toli (a Southeastern Indian game related to lacrosse) when his pain threshold is especially high. After twenty-five years in Athens, he has recently moved back to his home town, the wisdom of which move remains to be seen.
