THOMAS REYNOLDS received an MFA in creative writing from Wichita State University, currently teaches at Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kansas, and has published poems in various print and online journals, including New Delta Review, Alabama Literary Review, Aethlon-The Journal of Sport Literature, Midwest Poetry Review, The MacGuffin, The Pedestal Magazine, 3rd Muse Poetry Journal, American Western Magazine, and Flint Hills Review.

Not a current resident of Arkansas, his father's side of the family has deep roots in the state, and he has many relatives both living and buried in Arkansas. Though he has lived primarily in Kansas for many years, the Reynolds family still retains a house and five acres near Low Gap and visit often.
