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 three in the UK. He has won multiple audience favorite awards.
Within the span of a year, four of Tom’s full-lengths were produced in Los Angeles: 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.
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.
