He completed a Bachelors in English at age 18 from Thomas Edison State University.
Until You Say My Name is his debut novel. In addition to prose-length novels, he also enjoys writing short fiction and poetry. He previously had a short story, “The Long Way North,” published with Scarlet Leaf Review in 2021. As a gay trans man, Tatum enjoys exploring queer themes and stories in his work, as well as tapping into themes such as existential horror, subverting societal expectations and values, and the tenacity of the human spirit.
Outside of writing, he enjoys playing video games, traveling, curating Spotify playlists for his original characters, and deep diving into the lore and minutiae of fictional worlds.
