Tom (Tommy) Anderson has been a storyteller his whole life, and in his first novel, Haboob Wind, he draws on his experiences in the military and law enforcement to author a chilling scenario that plays homage to the resourcefulness and patriotism of veterans. A Madison, Wisconsin native, he needed his mother’s permission to enlist in the U.S. Army three weeks after graduating high school, at the age of 17 — when he began a life of serving others.  After leaving active duty, Tommy served in the Army National Guard and Air Force Air National Guard — the latter to pursue his interest in aviation — retiring in 1993 after 23 years of military service. His second career of 25 years was in public service, initially as a police deputy and dispatcher, and ultimately as a firefighter for the city of Madison, a position he retired from in 1998 after being disabled in the line of duty.  Tommy serves on the board of directors for Us4Warriors.
