Tom DeMarchi joined Florida Gulf Coast University's faculty after spending six years teaching and tutoring at SUNY Cortland.  When not writing (short stories, restaurant reviews and essays), teaching, sleeping, or cataloguing his CDs, you'll find Tom reading biographies of jazz musicians and dead presidents, bouncing up and down on an elliptical glider, or meeting with colleagues to discuss the Sanibel Writers Conference, which he directs.  Because of his haircut and monochromatic fashion sense, he is often mistaken for a police officer.
