Tom would like to point out that he is not related to "the" Tom Clancy, although he is proud to be related to another Tom Clancy: his dad, a retired veteran of the FDNY (which is a more important job than "World Famous Author" no matter how you slice it, although the pay isn't as good, sadly). Douglas Heyman is a longtime Mac user, having cut his teeth on the venerable System 6 on an SE with two 800K floppies and 1MB of memory. Early in his career, he worked as a writer and managing editor of numerous literary projects. Shifting his professional focus to one of his main loves, technology, he spent the next few years as in-house IT staff for a major New York advertising agency.

Born and raised in New Jersey, he resides in Hoboken with his loving wife, Suzanne, and his wondrous son, Marcus.
