A lone drifter in a world full of writers…
Thompson was born in Tachikawa, Tokyo, Japan, and has roamed the world and the U.S. before settling in New Mexico in 1986. He went into the trucking industry beginning in 1988, working as a diesel technician.
In 2000, he started another sub-career as an author. He has had stories and graphic art accepted into such publications as Yellow Mama, Shotgun Honey, and Runewright to name a few. He started Dead Guns Press in 2013 to help showcase modern crime fiction literature.
In 2015 Thompson became the book cover designer for Barry Sadler’s Casca: The Eternal Mercenary series written by UK author Tony Roberts. To date, he has completed or reworked twenty-seven covers for that series. He has also completed more than a dozen other book covers for other authors and publishing houses.
In 2018, he wrote and published his first novel Truck Stop, followed by Monkey Wrench, It’s a Lonely World (non-fiction), and Cold Hearts & Other Stories in 2021. He continues to write about many subjects and genres.
