[November 24, 2020]    The year 2020 marks the 19th anniversary of the September 11th attack on United States soil. In this peculiar year where all things true and real feel like a work of implausible fiction, the tale spun by Brewster in The Road to Floradixie found a perfect home.

The Road to Floradixie is an exhilarating read for conspiracy enthusiasts. Brewster intertwines the lives of a magnificent man of superior intellect and strength, and an improbable retired cop-duo. They unknowingly collide as partners in a secret war borne out of the patriotic sentiment to, “always remember.” Fighting terrorism in the shadows, this dubious team is ill-equipped for the undertaking as they embark on their chilling journey to the Floradixie truck stop. Their story is a provocative and rousing chronicle that will keep you turning the pages right until the end.

Tom, a native of Missouri, came to Lincoln, Illinois when he was 17 years of age to visit his sister who resided in Lincoln. He landed a job with a local farm and knocked around central Illinois until becoming an officer with the LPD in 1972.

Although Brewster flourished in his day job as an officer, he continued to nurture his love for writing. Over the years, he has published a total of four books, most recently, The Hung Jury.

This fictional work was inspired by the true events of the Smrekar murders occurring in the late 1970’s in Lincoln while Brewster served as an office for the Lincoln Police Department.

On Small Business Saturday November 28, 2020, at local favorite in historic downtown Lincoln, Flossie and Delzena’s, Brewster will be hosting a book-signing. From 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m., you can meet the author and enjoy your favorite F&D coffee and snacks. He will have a limited supply of copies for purchase, or you can purchase your advanced copies at any major bookseller: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-a-Million.
