Meet Maine Author Tommy Carbone

Tommy Carbone is an engineer, world traveler, writer, and lover of microbrews – not necessarily in that order.

He writes historical fiction and memoir, telling stories to entertain and engage readers.

He grew up in Brooklyn New York during the 1970s and early 80s.  There he roamed the avenues, hung out in candy stores shooting pinball, and dodged cars while playing street ball. Brooklyn was then, as it is now, the “4th largest city” in America, but was a very different place than it is today. It’s all explained in his memoir – “Growing Up Greenpoint – A Kid’s Life in 1970s Brooklyn,” a book of fun stories that will have you laughing, crying, and shaking your head wondering how his mother let him do the things he did (she didn’t know).

Watch the “Growing Up Greenpoint” book trailer video.

Leaving Brooklyn to memories, he now writes from a one-room cabin on the shores of a Maine lake, in an area of our north woods where moose outnumber people three to one. You can read about moose, and more, in his novel, “The Lobster Lake Bandits – Mystery at Moosehead.” For posts and behind the scenes stories about the Moosehead area, you can read his blog here.

Sign up below for his newsletter and to be kept informed for his upcoming releases.

In Maine, you can find his books at Sherman’s Maine Coast Book Shops – locations in Bar Harbor, Camden, Damariscotta, Boothbay Harbor, Freeport, and Portland. Stop in and ask they’ll be happy to help.
