Thomas Willis has lived a storybook life. He was born in a Southern Georgia town and spent his earliest years on a small farm where his parents grew tobacco and cotton. He lived for some time in a two-room cabin with no running water and a wood fed pot-bellied stove serving for cooking and heat. By the age of six, Thomas roamed the South Georgia woods with his own rifle looking for squirrels and rabbits. He ate what he killed. He followed the cotton pickers to pick up what few boles that were dropped. He picked caterpillars from tobacco leaves until he filled a bucket. At the age of seven his family moved to the University town of Gainesville, Florida. A new and different world opened. After graduating from the University of Florida aided by an athletic scholarship, he earned a degree in Dentistry from the Medical College of Virginia. Here he met a medical student, Ruth, who would become his future wife. Upon entering the Army as a Captain, he spent time in Vietnam and Thailand. Returning to the US at the height of the civil unrest during the Vietnam war he experienced the worst of the protest by being spit on and dodging thrown objects. After discharge from active duty, Thomas and Ruth married and over the years raised three children. After retiring from the active practice of Dentistry, Thomas was able to do what he’d always wanted to do, becoming a full-time educator. Thomas admits that his last few years working as a Professor at the University of Florida Dental school was the most fulfilling part of his professional career. During his professional years, Thomas was able to enjoy his love of the outdoors on his family’s ranch. He also enjoys hunting and fishing trips with friends. After retiring for the second time, Thomas has pursued his love of tennis and writing. To quote Thomas, “I consider myself to be the luckiest guy in the world by being able to follow many different dreams”.  Having completed Mark’s Way, he is already working on a follow up novel featuring Roe and Mark.
