Tony Thomson’s debut novel, About Face: A Mystery, is soon to released by Moose House Publications, Annapolis Royal, NS. The setting is fictitious Sterling County, nestled between Kings and Annapolis Counties in Nova Scotia.
Tony taught sociology and criminology at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia for thirty-four years. He has written reams of papers and published two non-fiction textbooks with Oxford University Press. Involved for several years in a project researching rural policing, Tony went on many calls with town cops and the RCMP. A popular teacher as well as a researcher, Tony won three Excellence in Teaching Awards presented by the Acadia Student Union and challenged many of his students with his own unique, passionate teaching style. Like Ian in About Face, noon hour often found him playing basketball with the NBA (Noon Hour Basketball Association).
