Tommy Archuleta, a wordsmith and storyteller, was born in Santa Fe, N.M., where the rich culture and history would later serve as a wellspring of inspiration for his writing. Archuleta embarked on his literary journey at a young age, weaving tales that effortlessly blended elements of the supernatural with the everyday, creating a unique narrative style that has captivated readers worldwide. His deep appreciation for the human experience, coupled with an unrelenting curiosity, fuels his work as he explores the complexities of identity, relationships and the enduring struggle between light and darkness. Archuleta's newest book was released in April 2023. “Susto” focuses on the journey through loss and grief.
