Don Thomas is a writer and editor. He could have been a professional gambler, but sadly the only two card games he ever had any luck with was Strip Poker with the Landlord's wife and High Card gets to Punch you in the Face. So once he reached the level of maturity where he was seldom late with the rent and getting repeatedly punched in the face started to lose its appeal, Don decided he would try his hand at professionally writing. Eventually getting to the point where most times he was even taking credit for the projects he worked on.
During his time with Pro Se Don has worked as a copy editor, as well as having the fantasy short stories Andar and the Farmer and the Town that Demanded Recompense published in different anthology volumes. Don was also able to publish a Science Fiction novel titled Savior in early 2012. One of his proudest achievements with the company was being able to work on several Pro Se Pulp Obscura projects including The New Adventurers of the Griffon, and the upcoming Pulp Obscura books featuring Major Lacy and the Green Ghost.
Coming soon from Don is the publication of his first Fantasy novel. He is also working on several other Fantasy projects including an anthology and other novels set in the same Fantasy setting as the first. Along the way he has also been steadily working on completing a novel based on his 1940's Pulp character the Rapier, which will also be featured in an ongoing monthly comic by another publisher.
Don also worked as Copy Editor on Pro Se Presents: The Magazine for much of its second run until its retirement in February 2014.

Bringing Adventures and Heroes Lost in Yesterday Blazing to Live in New Pulp Tales Today, Pulp Obscura Proudly Presents THE NEW ADVENTURES OF THE GREEN GHOST.
The world of Mythas is in transition.
The old gods are near forgotten and a palpable tension hangs in the air. This is especially apparent to two young magic casting brothers, Lawrence and Hesikiah, raised by a father who was a War Mage of the highest caliber and a mother whose shrewd diplomacy helped to forge the alliances of the five great nations to the West. Even with a lineage such as this, neither brother could have imagined the role they and the other valiant heroes soon to join them would play on the world stage. Or that their coming had been foretold in a series of ancient prophecies.
Pro Se Productions presents THE BROTHERS JADE, an exciting tale of fantasy and magic by author Don Thomas. Set on the landscape of his own imagination, Thomas creates a cast of characters that not only stand sword to shield with other fantasy creations, but also carry humanity in their every action. THE BROTHERS JADE is as much a story of family and heroism and loyalty as it is of monsters, mages, and battle. Both a quest tale and a rousing adventures, THE BROTHERS JADE brings out another aspect that is often overlooked in Fantasy works. It is also a coming of age tale sat against the stark backdrop of intrigue and adventure, action and danger. A rousing adventure for any fan of Fantasy.
THE BROTHERS JADE by Don Thomas from Pro Se Productions, the leader in New Pulp and Genre Fiction.

Triumphant!!!, April 28, 2012
By Brett McKnight
SAVIOR is the debut novel of author Don Thomas, and an absolutely brilliant one at that. I have reviewed many books in my days and this book stood out from all. This is an action packed, roller coaster ride of a read; that grabs you by the seat of your pants and doesn't let you go. In fact this is a book YOU don't want to let go of, you won't be able to put down once picked up!!! I was simply amazed by the authors work, this is the type of passion you don't find anymore but in a great author!!!

Great book, May 21, 2012
SAVIOR gives us a new twist on the pulp sci-fi. Don does a great job of telling his story, while adding a good mix of character interaction. The action scenes don't bog you down with details or gore, but still immerse you in them. This may be Don's debut novel, but I'm looking forward to the next one.
