T.A. Uner burst onto the U.S. literary scene in 2010 with his debut short-story, "The Banker's Wife," later acquired by publisher/editor Becky Coffield in 2011 and distributed in Award Winning Tales: an anthology comprised of short fiction written by emerging and established writers. Mr. Uner graduated from George Mason University with a degree in Speech Communication and History and is an accomplished public speaker/promoter. He's an enthusiastic storyteller who loves turning others onto reading. When he's not reading, writing, or traveling he enjoys satisfying his caffeine addiction, playing air guitar, and haunting local libraries and bookstores. The Leopard Vanguard is his first novel.
