Thomas Maurstad

Thomas Maurstad was the pop culture critic of the Dallas Morning News for over 20 years. Since his release back into the wild in 2011, he is endeavoring to create ambitious, compelling fiction. In a frying pan/fire conundrum, Maurstad has discovered that his two-plus decades of professional writing have a current market value of zero-point-zero in the book publishing industry. Apparently, as a young man with an urgent but unshaped drive to write, he should have chosen student loans and an MFA writing program rather than odd jobs and journalism as his response to the existential challenge of how to subsidize his development as a writer. In the words of his patron saint of recovering journalist-novelists, (KV Jr.) ‘So it goes.’
