T. Fox Dunham is an established author in multiple genres, writer of several upcoming books and over hundreds of short stories published internationally in all mediums. He has several novels coming out over the next year, and his first novel, The Street Martyr, published by Gutter Books, is being made into a major motion picture by ThroughLine Films.Fox is a cancer survivor. At the age of 18, a golf ball grew under his ear. It took a month and two failed attempts by medical facilities, but finally the Armed Forces Medical Institute identified the cells as a rare form of lymphoma--Composite Lymphoma. It's a mix of both Hodgkin's and Large Cell Lymphoma. Only 10 people in the world have been diagnosed with this disease, and Fox is the first survivor, being treated with intense dosages of CHOP chemotherapy and 5 months of daily radiation. The treatment destroyed his body, disabling Fox, and it was a miracle that the treatment drove back the cancer. It took Fox a decade to recover, learning to walk again and function, and he suffers in terrible pain and disability. Writing became Fox's only means of escape, of getting his life back. He pursues his spirituality as a modern Bard, a kind of Celtic shaman who uses art and a part of soul called the Awen to heal the world. He communes with nature, worshipping natural and elemental forces. His spirit guide is a Fox--an animal totem that helped him to heal.Fox is a trained gardener, herbalist and historian. He cooks and enjoys RPG including D&D, which helped train him as an author.After building a career writing short fiction, Fox became a recognized horror author and was inducted into the Horror Writer's Association. For his first novel, he broke away from horror and wrote a crime-thriller story set in his adopted Philadelphia. The Street Martyr was published by Gutter Books, starting with a release party in San Francisco.
