Thomas Newman writes books about carriages, corsets, and smartwatches. His books have received starred reviews in Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, and Booklist. He is a New York Times and a USA Today Bestseller. Newman pens a weekly newsletter about tea, books, and basically anything and everything else. Before he started writing romance, Newman got a graduate degree in theoretical physical chemistry from UC Berkeley. After that, just to shake things up, he went to law school at the University of Michigan and graduated summa cum laude. Then he did a handful of clerkships. He was a law professor for a while. He now writes full-time.
