TOM CLAVIN, whose latest book is ALL BLOOD RUNS RED, is a bestselling author who has worked as a newspaper and web site editor, magazine writer, TV and radio commentator, and a reporter for The New York Times covering entertainment, sports, and the environment. He has received awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, Marine Corps Heritage Foundation, and National Newspaper Association. Four of his books have been New York Times best sellers: THE HEART OF EVERYTHING THAT IS, DODGE CITY, HALSEY'S TYPHOON, and THE LAST STAND OF FOX COMPANY. Other books that have received popular and critical acclaim include THE DiMAGGIOS, RECKLESS, WILD BILL, LAST MEN OUT, LUCKY 666, and GIL HODGES. Tom was born in the Bronx. His first professional job was as a publicist and proofreader for Sterling Publishing, which at the time produced annual editions of "The Guinness Book of World Records." He began freelance writing and editing in 1980, and moved to Sag Harbor, NY two years later. Tom still lives there, and his two children, Kathryn and Brendan, were born and raised in Sag Harbor. His career has also included working in the newspaper game on eastern Long Island – managing editor of The East Hampton Star, editor-in-chief of the Independent chain of weeklies, and writing arts features and the “Farther East” column for the Press News Group. Gradually, writing nonfiction books became his full-time occupation. ALL BLOOD RUNS RED is to be published on November 5, 2019 by Hanover Square Press, and TOMBSTONE, from St. Martin's Press, will be released on April 21, 2020.
