Welcome to Tom’s Author Page

Thomas Kirkwood is an international author best known for his original thrillers (and least known for the personal stories that are always behind their composition.)  Kirkwood’s works have been published by Macmillan, Collier Macmillan (Canada), Donald I. Fine (An imprint of Penguin), Signet (An imprint of NAL), The Authors Guild (Back-in-Print), The Brilliance Corporation (Audio), Audible.com, Ménéstrandise Audiolibri (Rome) and Bladkompaniet (Europe). Movie rights and options have been acquired by Hawnfilm, Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox. After years in the EU, Kirkwood now makes his home in Denver, Colorado.  He enjoys bicycling, hiking along the Continental Divide, cooking, drinking and, of course, returning to Europe to visit friends and search for settings for his next novel. He is married to a wonderful wife and has two beautiful daughters. Of life, he says, “I’ve been fortunate, lucky perhaps.  This creates an obligation to those who have fared less well.  In the Western world there’s enough to go around.  Make sure it does.”
