(TR) Thomas J. Rundquist - Personal Bio

Personal Bio
I was born April 7, 1945 in Big Rapids, Michigan to a family of artists and furniture designers.   I graduated from Big Rapids High School in 1963. I have been CEO/President of Nova Review Inc. since 1981. Nova Review Inc. is an art publishing and social concern writing publisher.   I also went through Commissioning as an Officer in the Infantry in May 1969, but did not go active due to a hearing loss at the end of my Masters Degree and completion of the 2yr Senior Army ROTC program.

Later I ran as a Democrat for State Representative and then for U.S. Congress from West Central Michigan's 4th District.

I am better known as a writer and sell my publications through Amazon.com plus barnesandnoble.com and I am available at all bookstores.

My first publication was a simulation called "Horse is Boss (Drug Culture Monopoly)".   It was featured in the Sunday Detroit News and then later in the Grand Rapids Press.

Awards and Achievements
I was selected as one of the "2000 Outstanding Artists and Designers of the 20th Century Worldwide".   Kundalini, one of my popular prints, was selected for "Art Business News", my art juried for Art Communication International CD-Rom as one of 323 out of 10,000 juried entrees.   In the early 80's I was selected for an "Anthology of Young and Promising Artists" that now many have become famous.
