Profile: Tom Lowery

I'm a writer, author, training specialist and entrepreneur. I write on my blog, Thinking Out Loud, about life, people, business and interpersonal relationships, which means, in essence, I've combined literature and business to create my own career path: I'm a "Lit-re-preneur.

I spent over thirty years within the 9 to 5 world, helping others make millions while I busied myself writing articles for magazines like Cinescape and Hollywood Then and Now; producing special events for larger projects like UKwithNY, a few dozen stage productions and special events like MainMission: 2000.

More recently, I’ve also been contributing to Huffington Post, CMS Wire, collaborating with Cheryl Snapp Conner on Forbes, working on my first mystery novel and developing a unique business. My blog is the beginning of another exciting new project I’m formulating which will enable writers and artists with their promotional efforts.
