S. Thomas Bailey
S. Thomas Bailey is an Award-Winning author and independent researcher of early Colonial life, a raw historian at heart, and a writer of historical fiction by choice.

I resides in a quiet hamlet north of Toronto, Ontario, with my wife, two children, and Aussie, the family’s Australian shepherd.

Along with her brother, who keeps me young, the entire family shares my passion for the early colonial life covering the French and Indian War period.
