More About the Author

T.E. (Tom) Temple was born in 1949 in a small rural town north of Atlanta, Georgia. Prior to his first birthday, the family relocated to Atlanta in search of a better life. Tom spent his childhood in Atlanta, but the family moved to a small city south of Atlanta when he was fourteen. His new, smaller, semi-rural environment was a cultural shock compared to Atlanta, but he soon adapted.

Cheese Grits, Stories to Nourish the Southern Soul is Tom's first book of short stories and his experiences in Atlanta and Forest Park, Georgia in the 1950s and 60s provide the settings for the book. Tom created the Cheese Grits web site http://www.cheesegritsbook.com complete with visitor forums to promote the book and share memories with other "boomers".

Tom's other publication is Extreme Restoration, a massive 700 page standard reference for the accurate, period-correct restoration of antique American clocks. His #1 rated web site http://www.xrestore.com is a support and companion site for the book providing updates and how-to articles.

Tom holds a master's degree in business management and spent over thirty years in corporate life with both European and Asian firms.

Tom retired from a lengthy business career in 2009 and now resides in Nashville, TN where he and wife Terry spend much of their time in volunteer work with the Red Cross.

Tom can be contacted at any of his web sites or at tom.cheesegrits@yahoo.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Extreme Restoration 27 Dec 2013
By Diane L. Burghardt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Shipping was fast and excellent. As for the book itself,it is an absolute must for anyone getting into clock repair. It is extensive and excellently written. Even the amatuer can get a grasp on the explanations. It is through and has extensive photos to help with the explanations. I would recommend this book highly, especially after reading a vast number of other works on the subject. Stop wasting money on other books and purchase this one first. Diane

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource! 23 Dec 2013
By Amy E. Glaser - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is invaluable to me. I am a novice restorer and found this to be extremely helpful as the author has already paved the path. There are several typos in the book, as I presume this book was "homegrown," as it is not a slick and glossy book. But, despite those minor flaws it is an excellent way to get started and VERY comprehensive. This book is available in digital and paper formats. If you choose paper you still have access to full color images and resources online. The pictures in the book are black and white but sufficient for most purposes. It was surely a labor of love that this author complied his years of experience into this volume. I thank you T.E. Temple!
