Truth in fiction vs. nonfiction, or how I learned to get it it by making things up.  

Tom will talk about how he does research for his political thrillers and how that research is different than what he did as a journalist.

Tom is the author of eleven books, four of which are novels, and the Eleanor Merrill Visiting Professor on the Future of Journalism at the University of Maryland Philip Merill College of Journalism. He was a reporter for many years, at the LA Times and Newsweek, before becoming one of the founders of the Pew Research Center in Washington. I began writing novels about political intrigue in 2017. His fourth novel, and newest, The Days To Come (Nov. 2021 from Ecco HarperCollins) is about the attempts by a iconoclastic Silicon Valley entrepreneur to treat the government like a disrupted industry and start over.
