Tom Farrell has worked as a golf course starter, a chemist and clerked at City Hall in Chicago while attending law school. He is the author of The Wager Series, a mystery-thriller series set in the world of sports betting, horse racing and poker. The series includes Wager Tough, WagerEasy, and Wager Smart. Wager Tough was selected by Kirkus Reviews as one of the Best Indie Books of 2021 and one of the Best Indie Mystery Thrillers of 2021. Wager Smart was an Editor’s Pick by Kirkus Reviews and was chosen as a Finalist by Indies Today for their book award. Each book in the series received a starred review from Kirkus Reviews. Tom has served as Vice President of Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and was a 2021 finalist for RMFW’s Independent Writer of the Year. This year, he is one of three finalists for the 2024 Writer of the Year award.

Now retired from practicing law when he’s not handicapping, he can be found at the local RMFW critique group meeting or on the golf course. 

On the podcast, Tom also talks about a Master Class he is teaching at Colorado Gold in September about audiobook production.
