Tom Spanbauer lives, writes, and teaches in Portland Oregon. His Dangerous Writing workshop is an underground legend among emerging writers in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. The community of writers that has formed around him is dedicated to the proposition that “Fiction is the lie that tells the truth truer.”

Tom has a Pulitzer Nomination and explores issues of race, of sexual identity, of how we make a family for ourselves in order to surmount the limitations of the families into which we are born.

His four published novels Faraway Places, The Man Who Fell In Love With The Moon, In The City Of Shy Hunters and Now Is the Hour are all cult classics.

His story ‘Linden Trees’ appears in Light Transports.
