Tom Misuraca was born and raised in Boston, where he received a degree in Writing, Publishing and Literature from Emerson College. His first story, If You Look At It, You May Die, appeared in Emerson's Hyena Magazine. Since then, his short stories have appeared in over eighty publications worldwide. In 2009, Tom’s vampire parody novel, Lifestyles of the Damned, was published by James A. Rock & Company.
Tom was a late bloomer in the theater world, but his writing fit it perfectly. Over fifty of his one-act plays have been produced in almost every major city in the United States as well the UK. He has won multiple audience favorite awards.
Within the span of a year, four of Tom’s full-lengths were produced in Southern California: Geeks! The Musical, The ParaAbnormals, Edgar and Tenants. All played to sold out crowds and great reviews. Geeks! went on to be produced Off-Off Broadway in October 2013 and in San Diego in the summer of 2014.
This year, he won two playwriting awards: The Pickering Award for his old-age superhero play, Golden Age, which was produced at the Tibbits Opera House in Michigan; and the Las Vegas Little Theatre New Works award for Little Black Book, which was produced in Las Vegas in April. Within one month, four of his new full-length plays were seleceted for staged readings by four different theater companies in Los Angeles.
He is a member of the Los Angeles Alliance of Playwrights and FirstStage LA where he served as President of the Board for four years.
When he’s not writing, he works as a freelance graphic designer. He enjoys yoga, dancing, music and reading.
