Tommy Reynolds was born in New York City and raised in Long Beach, Long Island, seven houses from the beach. As a kid, he played sports in the street with his friends, then in organized leagues, during all three seasons; football/soccer, basketball, and his favorite, baseball. He is a lifelong, passionate baseball fan, who was pulled in hook-line and sinker as a kid by Chris Chambliss’ 1976 pennant-clinching home run, which sent the Yankees to their first World Series in twelve years.
He attended Chaminade High School, an all-boys prep school run by the Marianist Brothers. After Chaminade he attended Manhattan College, where he was a sports writer and co-sports editor of the school newspaper, The Quadrangle. He covered the Jaspers basketball, baseball, and crew teams. Upon graduation he entered the business world, embarking on a successful career in the world of finance.
He is an active racquetball player, runner, and softball player, currently residing in scenic Mendham, N.J. with his three children. In his spare time he umpires men’s baseball games. Miller Rounding Third is his first novel.
