T. M. 'Mike' Brown
Author T.M. Brown, Mike to family and friends, and his wife of going on fifty years, Connie, live near Newnan, GA. In 2014, she encouraged Mike to retire and write memorable stories as a legacy for their five grandchildren. Hence, the quaint South Georgia town of Shiloh came into being, inhabited with colorful and often quirky characters in a rustic close-knit community. As he learned during his decades of travel throughout the South, even wholesome looking small-towns are not free of conflict and scandal. Scars evince past scandals and sins and never fully heal in a small-town such as Shiloh, and new arrival, Theo Phillips, has a curious knack for scratching at those scars.
Sanctuary, the first of the Shiloh stories, launched April 2017, and became Sanctuary: A Legacy of Memories (January 2018), the first in the Shiloh Mystery Series. Testament: An Unexpected Return followed in April 2018. Purgatory: A Progeny's Quest is the third book in the Shiloh Mystery Series, released originally in May 2020, but re-released in January 2022 with new features for the reader of the entire series, including a complete character list. Will there be more? Guess y'all will have to wait and see. BUT, watch for Anniversary Editions of Sanctuary and Testament, coming 2023!
Coming August 15, 2023, T. M. Brown's historical novel, The Last Laird of Sapelo (Koehler Books). By the end of 1865, not long after General William T. Sherman’s famous march through Georgia, history records, but for a few exceptions, all the freed Geechee slaves and their families returned to their homes on Sapelo Island, one of Georgia’s storied barrier islands abandoned shortly after the war broke out. The Last Laird of Sapelo offers a historically accurate, dramatic story that sheds light on the Spalding family’s near-forgotten legacy on the once prosperous island. The Last Laird of Sapelo addresses why four-hundred freed Geechee along with the Spalding family thrived during the challenging decades that followed.
