Thomas Marshall is a Southern California native currently pursuing the MFA in Fiction at Columbia University in New York City. He grew up in San Diego and attended the University of Southern California where he studied both Business and Screenwriting, graduating in only three-and-a-half-years. An unashamed cliché, Thomas collects both books and vinyl, and spends his free time enjoying both as well as cooking, spending time with friends, and volunteering as a creative writing teacher for high schoolers.
No More Dead Kids is his first novel.
"No More Dead Kids is a firebrand call to action regarding the United States’ adolescent mental health epidemic and the seemingly endless cycle of school shootings and violence, written for, by, and about the millennial generation. Topical yet timeless and entirely captivating, this debut novel follows Alexander as he navigates high school, begins a secret relationship with his teacher’s daughter, and attempts to prevent his troubled new friend Kenneth from becoming a school shooter."
