A Community of Tennessee Writers, Readers & Passersby

Brad Thor, Nashvillian

A bestselling author of thrillers makes the move to Music City

Brad Thor routinely hits the top of the bestseller lists with immensely popular spy novels featuring counterterrorism agent Scott Horvath. The tech-savvy writer stays connected to his fans via social media, so it’s no surprise that he recently chose to make a big announcement via Twitter: he is moving to Nashville from Chicago, citing high crime and taxes as his primary reasons for leaving Illinois.

“We set the bar very high and @NashvilleTenn exceeded our expectations. No doubt they’ll treat this author very well,” Thor tweeted.

Thor will arrive in time for the publication of his next book, Act of War, in early July. Fans who wish to welcome Thor to the area can do so when he appears at the Brentwood Costco for a book signing on July 19. Look for Chapter 16‘s review of book on July 15.

Thor graduated cum laude from the University of Southern California, where he studied creative writing, film, and television production. Prior to becoming a novelist, Thor was the award-winning creator, producer, writer and host of the National Public Television series, Traveling Lite. He is an active supporter of the USO, Disabled American Veterans, the Wounded Warrior Project, the Yellow Ribbon Fund, and the Salvation Army.
