Steven M. Thomas Steven M. Thomas

Steven M. Thomas is a poet, novelist, and journalist. His poetry has been published in scores of academic and small press literary magazines in the U.S. and Great Britain. His books include Criminal Paradise (2008), a literary crime fiction novel with a criminal hero set in Orange County that was a finalist for best first novel at Thrillerfest in 2009 and Criminal Karma (2009), a sequel set in Venice Beach and the Coachella Valley. Published to rave reviews across the country, Criminal Karma was called a “smart, sexy crime thriller” by the Tucson Citizen. The New York Times Book Review dubbed the novel “charming . . . energetic . . . lyrical.” T. Jefferson Parker had this to say: “This novel is more than a wonderful thriller and a classic caper-gone-wrong. It’s a morality tale and a jaw-dropping tour of Southern California at its most crazy and compelling. I loved it.” Thomas is working on a third volume in his crime fiction series and a non-fiction book.
