Thomas Hill is a literary agent with Martin Literary Management. He joins MLM after fifteen years in the publishing industry. He began his career while serving as an intern at the University of Virginia Press while pursuing his undergraduate degree in government. Part of that experience enabled him to assess incoming book proposals and advocate for acceptance of nonfiction book projects.
He honed his professional editing skills as a copyeditor and proofreader in the workforce, later transitioning into content writing, ghostwriting, and publishing consulting. At Rowman & Littlefield, he edited scholarly and nonfiction titles, and he learned standard protocols for publication production at various nonprofit membership organizations in Washington, DC: the American Staffing Association, Public Broadcasting Service, and the US Chamber of Commerce. His professional experiences enabled him to serve as an editorial consultant to over a dozen publishing entities. Other notable editorial experiences include copyeditor at The Santa Fe New Mexican and, most recently, development editor at John Wiley & Sons.
Thomas has attained many writing credits that include published articles (outdoor adventure, sports) and collaborative projects on fiction and nonfiction titles as a ghostwriter. His fiction debut, Warrior’s Song, placed third in paranormal fiction at the annual Readers Favorite awards in 2011.
He is currently pursuing a Master of Liberal Arts degree at St. John’s College.
Thomas is on a mission to find authentic voices who strive to raise the consciousness of the reading public through satire, humor, brilliant prose, and/or a sobering examination of issues and situations currently impacting the human experience.

• Thriller/Suspense (political, military, religious/cult, psychological, espionage)
• Science Fiction (AI, utopian/dystopian societies, alternate history)
• Western (mountain men, cowboys, Native voices)
