Thomas Pluck is the author of Bad Boy Boogie, a Jay Desmarteaux crime thriller coming from Down & Out Books in 2017, and Blade of Dishonor, an action adventure which MysteryPeople called “the Raiders of the Lost Ark of pulp paperbacks.” He has slung hash, worked on the docks, and even swept the Guggenheim museum (but not as part of a clever heist). He hails from Nutley, New Jersey, also home to criminal masterminds Martha Stewart and Richard Blake, but has so far evaded capture.
He shares his hideout with his sassy Louisiana wife ‘Firecracker’ and their two felines: an aloof rescued Siamese named Charlie and an incorrigible dingus named Louie.
His work has appeared in The Utne Reader, Beat to a Pulp, [PANK] Magazine, Burnt Bridge, Spinetingler, McSweeney’s, Crimespree Magazine and anthologies such as Blood on the Bayou, Unloaded: Crime Writing Without Guns, and Dark City Lights, edited by Lawrence Block. He also edited the Protectors anthologies to benefit PROTECT: The National Association to Protect Children.
