About Me

2016-Tom Gallen I’m Tom Gallen. My wife and I both have ancestral roots in County Donegal, Ireland. Born in Philadelphia, I spent much of my life in a part of suburban Philadelphia that was once known as Kellyville, one of the locales used in my novel. My wife Grace and I currently live in Treasure Island, Florida. We have three children and nine grandchildren.

More about me: I’m an Electrical Engineer who worked in the Power Industry. My degrees are from Villanova University and the University of Pennsylvania.

Also, I’m an amateur musician who plays in local jazz bands. That’s me on the brief sax solo in the 2008 youtube video. If the video doesn’t play, click on the link  :
