Born March 7, 1967 in Batavia, New York, Thom Satterlee is a novelist, poet, and literary translator. As a child and young adult he loved to play soccer. Passion for “the world’s game” led him to spend his junior year of high school as an exchange student in Kolding, Denmark, where he learned that (more than likely) he would never become a worldclass soccer player. Gradually, his interests turned to literature and writing. At Houghton College he studied with the poet John Leax. After collecting two graduate degrees (M.A., SUNY Brockport; M.F.A., University of Arkansas) he began his college teaching career at the University of Miami and after two years accepted a tenure-track position at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana. He taught at Taylor for eleven years, receiving tenure and a promotion to Associate Professor. In 2011, he left full-time teaching but continues an affiliation with Taylor University as their Writer-in-Residence.
