Award-winning children’s author, Tom C. Greer, loves an audience. As a child growing up in Texarkana, TX, he was an avid reader and storyteller. In school, Greer was one of the "smart kids" and part of the popular crowd, but still somewhat shy and reserved. That all changed when he joined a public speaking class at his alma mater, Liberty-Eylau High School. It was winning a citywide contest that pushed him to the next level.
