Tom McLaughlin has been writing for years, creating advertising for toys and ice cream to enormous construction equipment. Working for a book publishing company, he also promoted New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal best-selling books, authors, and illustrators.
Raising energetic kids, zigzagging cross country on family vacations, and growing up in a typically crazy Catholic family have given Tom years of writing material. The McLaughlin clan currently lives in a 100-year-old bungalow in the Midwest. When Tom’s not renovating or writing, he’s piloting the crew on another adventure. Or he’s simply in the backyard battling the dandelions and crabgrass.
