Hello visitors, and welcome to my website!
As you have probably surmised already, my name is Chadham Thomas and I am an author. It still sounds weird to say that, though at this point I would argue it is officially justified. Over the last year and a half my wife Lauren (fiancé at the time) would brag to everyone we met that I was now an author, and I vehemently shut it down. "I'm not an author yet, I just started writing something. I don't want to start telling people when I don't even know if I'll finish it."--eventually transitioned into--"I wrote something but that doesn't really make me an author, it's not like it will ever actually be published."--and has finally settled on--"Ok fine, it's going to be published, but that doesn't mean you should start telling everyone I've finished book two as well!"
The truth is, creating a world, discovering a story, and writing a book has been a somewhat surreal process for me. What started as a series of short stories to develop a setting for a Dungeons & Dragons game I wanted to create eventually progressed to character introductions for Helyan and Dr. Maynold, as well as Uuvrav and Princess Almya from the second book. By the time I was 50,000 words into a Light from Below I realized the D&D premise had disappeared and I was officially just writing.
As the release date for a Light from Below continues to draw closer, I felt it prudent to begin telling my story and welcoming each and every one of you into this new world. Feel free to leave questions and comments, as they will be my greatest bridge into the minds of readers.
