Thomas Overton
Thomas Overton is an ambitious new entrepreneur, Author, Freelance writer, and screenwriter who simply stumbled upon his ability and career as a writer. With no real experience, he embarked on a journey that would lead him to being a published author and a journeyman. Tom's love affair with writing started while he was a Business Major, studying full-time at Drexel University. Several of his college professors told him that they enjoyed reading his work and that he was a good writer. Tom had written numerous term papers and his professor's complements began to spark his writing interests. So, Mr. Overton decided to put his skills to use and practice the talents he had been praised for while attending college. The talent of being a good writer. In order to avoid insanity, depression, and boredom often encountered during life's journey, Tom came up with a writing concept that one of his friends thought would be a great movie. Since he didn't know how to structure a movie script, he went out and grabbed David Trottier's "Screenwriters' Bible."  Tom studied the screenwriting book from front to back. At the completion of his experimental writing process, he'd written four complete screenplays, eleven synopses, and thirty-two titles. Since tackling the screenwriting task, obtaining a literary agent or a film deal had become difficult. So, instead of waiting on the industry to come to him, Tom bought himself to the industry and decided to convert one of his completed screenplays into a novel. While writing the novel, Tom met an independent publisher who liked the story and decided to publish it. The debut novel is called "Murder With A Deadly Weapon". IT'S IN STORES NOW!! IN STORES NOW!!! "MURDER WITH A DEADLY WEAPON" RUN OUT OUT AND PICK UP THE STREET LIT NOVEL AND WITNESS THE EXCITING JOURNEY OF A GLOCK NINE HANDGUN.
His second novel, "Keys to the Franchise" will be released in 2010 through his own publishing company called Live 2 Die Publishing. Live 2 Die Publishing came from Tom's vision of seeing more Urban Novels come to the screen. Tom reaches out to urban authors to publish their novels and convert them into scripts so that he can shop them or produce them himself into independent films. Tom is a lot more than an author. He is a visionary leading the Urban Author into the next generation. Tom figures why settle for just having your books on the shelf.
