Tom Haley is a writer who recently injured a disk in his spine due to having wimpy core muscles. Don't worry. This happens to millions of people, and he's just fine. He's exercising on a daily basis now, and is feeling much better.
Tom has published several essays, and has previously busied himself as a grad student, writing teacher, copywriter, and book critic. He currently lives in Logan Square with his two sons, and works as a creative director for a Chicago marketing agency called Jellyvision.
