Pittsburgh, PA (Vocus) July 8, 2010
Thomophilus Heliodorus hates his name, school bullies, and funerals. His glasses make him sigh, Aunt Rene makes him cringe, and his sister Adrianne’s perfect smile makes him want to gag. If it weren’t for baseball, Thomophilus – or Tommy – would go insane – more insane, perhaps, than even crazy Uncle Leon, who insists that his stories of Greek gods and goddesses are more truth than fiction. But as Tommy and his sister find out, not only is this world of supernatural deities real, they are to play a crucial part in securing its fate – for the worse. For as Tommy discovers, immortality may not be all it’s cracked up to be.
About the Author
Nick Dixon wrote his earliest stories before he even knew how to spell. He would ask his parents to spell out each word as he wrote the letters in crayon.
Now he is a full-time student majoring in political science. Contributing institutions to his undergraduate degree include Miami University of Ohio, the Hispanic Studies program of the University of Virginia, and the University of San Diego.
He came up with the idea for The Pantheon Gate while lifeguarding, but it wasn’t until a broken wrist sentenced him to eight weeks of indoor confinement that he began writing its first chapters.
He currently lives in Mishawaka, Indiana with his family and Welsh Corgi.
