Growing up in the San Joaquin of California Thomas Shaw took an opportunity to get out and see more of the world. After seeing several duty stations while serving in the US navy, ironically all in California, and several other jobs Thomas now lives in the Pacific Northwest. Having taken up one hobby after another and mastering them just to see the interest and passion for them wane, writing seems to have taken hold of Thomas by the scruff of the neck and not let go. Damn that muse.
A few of his stories can be found in Alone in the Dark. Most of his other work can be found at http://www.furaffinity.net/user/tshaw/.
