About the Author



Tom Delaney has a PhD in education, an Med and BA in English and a CPM in conflict mediation.  He has taught at the University of Georgia, Southern Union College, Virginia College, and is currently an adjunct at Columbus State University.

As If There Were No Tomorrow is based on his years as a middle and high school instructor in Georgia’s youth prisons. It was in this setting that he amassed a wealth of unique classroom experiences, implemented successful academic programs, and developed innovative teaching techniques. He has been a guest on Reclaiming At Risk Youth—a television interactive teaching network program.

He was a part of the traveling team of presenters with the University of Georgia’s “Teaching the Tough to Teach,” and is a nationally known keynoter for various educational functions. His goal has always been twofold— to inspire and entertain. As If There Were No Tomorrow is the written expression of that objective.
