About the author
Tommy Anderson has been a storyteller his whole life, and in his first novel, Haboob Wind, he draws on his experiences in the military and law enforcement to author a chilling scenario that plays homage to the resourcefulness and patriotism of veterans. A Madison, Wisconsin native, he needed his mother’s permission to enlist in the U.S. Army three weeks after graduating high school, at the age of 17 — when he began a life of serving others.
After leaving active duty, Tommy served in the Army National Guard and Air Force Air National Guard — the latter to pursue his interest in aviation — retiring in 1993 after 23 years of military service. His second career of 25 years was in public service, initially as a police deputy and dispatcher, and ultimately as a firefighter for the city of Madison, a position he retired from in 1998 after being disabled in the line of duty.
Tommy serves on the board of directors for US4Warriors, a San Diego, California foundation dedicated to helping veterans, active duty military and their families overcome hardships and improve their ability to contribute to society. He’s a Colonel with the Commutative Air Force Association and a life member of the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans, 32nd Infantry Division Association, International Association of Firefighters Alumni Association, and U.S. Air Force and U.S. Air National Guard Fire Chief’s Association.
In the communications arena, Tommy is a member of the U.S. Press Association and the California American Legion Press Association, regularly submitting articles for its magazine. He’s also on the board of directors for Veterans Publishing, Inc., an offshoot of US4Warriors. In addition to writing, he’s an avid photographer who volunteers his time to support American military history. And, although he now lives in Southern California with his wife, Lidia, he has plenty of reasons to return occasionally to Wisconsin — two children and five grandchildren.
