The Marco Island Historical Society is pleased to announce that noted local author Tom Williams will be the speaker for their next monthly meeting, 7 p.m., Oct. 6 at Mackle Park. The program is preceded by refreshments and a brief business meeting.
Tom Williams is a regular columnist and feature writer. After having published hundreds of human interest and culinary columns, Tom’s well-rounded writing career includes articles in Paradise Magazine, the Naples Daily News, and the Marco Eagle. Williams’ writing has appeared in Amsco school publications and Frontier Airlines’ in-flight magazine The Wild Blue Yonder. He recently had a novel called “Lost and Found” published, and is currently working on another called “Voodoo Child.”
Williams continues to write columns and feature articles and he is employed as a merchant marine officer by Marriott’s Marco Beach Resort.
Williams’ interest in diving and marine history led to the writing of “Lost and Found.” He says he’s fascinated with the Spanish conquest of he New World and their insatiable quest for gold, and some of this has led to the most famous shipwrecks in the Florida area and the Caribbean.
After he program, the author will have a book sale and signing for those interested. The meeting is open to the public.
