M Thomas Apple Author Page

Science fiction, actual science, history, and personal ranting about life, the universe, and everything

Me-Eiffel1Originally from Troy, New York, M. Thomas Apple spent part of his childhood in a tiny hamlet in the Helderbergs and his teenage years in a slightly larger village in the Adirondacks. He studied languages and literature at Bard College and creative writing at the University of Notre Dame, where he wrote a controversial, award-winning opinion column for the student-run daily newspaper, The Observer.

He lives in rural Japan, in a house co-designed with his wife and partially decorated by his two daughters, nestled in the foothills of the mountains and surrounded by lots and lots of cedar and cicada. A holder of a 4th dan in Shorinji Kempo, he also enjoys hiking and running, as long as his asthma behaves itself.

His first novel, Approaching Twi-Night, received positive reviews from Self-Publishing Review and Kirkus Reviews, among others. A non-fiction book of essays (Taking Leave: An American on Paternity Leave in Japan, Perceptia Press) was published in October 2015, and a collection of his short fiction and poetry (Notes from the Nineties) was released in March 2016.

His novelette/novella Adam’s Stepsons is a preview of the futuristic dystopian world of the trilogy tentatively called Children of Pella. The first book of the trilogy is persistently nearing the end of the first draft. Currently, draft versions of various chapters are appearing online in an attempt to jumpstart his brain enough to finally finish the thing.
