About The Poet Thomas L. Vaultonburg
L. Vaultonburg owns
and operates Zombie Logic Press, in Rockford, IL. Thomas is
available for readings and workshops. Born
in 1969, Thomas L. Vaultonburg grew up in the shadows of the Byron
Nuclear plant. Despite this, or possibly because of it, he went on to
have a distinguished career as a child, including winning three
consecutive Presidential Physical Fitness Awards.
L. Vaultonburg began publishing poetry in the small press scene at age
19, and encouraged by poets like Ron Androla, Gerald Locklin, Todd
Moore and Charles Bukowski, soon wracked up an impressive list of
publications before he dropped out of the publishing scene altogether
to pursue a career in the restaurant/bar business, where he worked 12
years as a bartender, bouncer, and finally owned his own bar,
Castaways, with his brother Dan. Since 1997 Vaultonburg's poetry can
only be read at Zombie Logic Press.
L. Vaultonburg is a poet, actor, editor,
screenwriter, bloggist, painter and founder of the
Zombie Party (Z). He unsuccessfully ran for
Coroner twice, but undeterred by his crushing defeats has set his site
on statewide office in 2012. He is a lover of the Chicago Cubs, Devo,
Tab Cola, and Women's Flat Track Roller Derby.
