Author Spotlight – Tommy Crown
Tommy Crown is a graduate of UNLV where he earned a degree in Marketing.
He achieved international recognition in 2009 for his debut novel, “A Night At The Oscars”, a scorching account of the lives of paid male escorts during Hollywood’s golden years. Written in first person, Crown denies the story has any truth to it…but grins.
In 2010, he began ghostwriting from the female POV for Hustler, and Bitch magazines. A feat not easily accomplished by many male authors of erotica.
A self described loner and fiercely independent story teller, he quite naturally self published his first e-book “I Will Love You For A Thousand Years” in 2014. To date he has added 8 more.
His latest release, “Midnight in Eden” is a classical story of good vs evil as Eve chases Cain through the ages to destroy him before he destroys all mankind. Crown delivers the action as only he can. And even though there are some grizzly scenes of evil, he manages to lead us to Eden with smiles on our faces.
Tommy refuses to write cookie cutter stories and moves from genre to genre with ease. An example are his children’s short stories, ‘The Locket’ and ‘Tomorrowland’, written for his own daughters and available on Amazon next to his other works. His latest children’s book, ‘The Incredible Mr. Dann’ was just released in time for Thanksgiving and should be fun to share with your children.
While he mainly writes raw and gritty erotica, some describe his work like, ‘watching an old B&W movie’ narrated by Humphrey Bogart.
Describing Anna DuPont from “After Dark in Casablanca”, Crown repeatedly refers to her as ‘the dame with over glossed lips’ that smoked unfiltered cigarettes so seductively, everyone stared.
Tommy believes in creating strong, believable characters in all his works and insists the characters shouldn’t just be part of a good story…they are the story.

His collective number of free reads would fill Yankee Stadium an astonishing 50 times.
You can find his work here under contemporary romance/erotica.
Tommy remains single and insists he is living the life in the greatest city in the world. What happens there, stays there.
