About Tom

Originally from England, Writer and Film-Maker, Tom now resides in Boston, Massachusetts.

Before turning his hand to fiction, Tom had a successful career as the CEO of a consulting company, conference speaker and writer of industry articles and business books.  But determining that the business world lacked a sense of humor, Tom decided to hand in his jacket and tie and instead turned to the world of literature.

His novel, First Night, set in Boston during the New Year’s Eve festival, introduced the unlikely heroines, Alex and Jackie, and the ghost of a 17th century Puritan named Sarah Pemberton. First Night won an Honorable Mention in the Middle-Grade/Young Adult category, in the Writers Digest 17th Annual International Self-Published Book Awards.

The sequel to First Night, called the Elf of Luxembourg, was published in January, 2010. As with First Night, The Elf of Luxembourg is also a supernatural mystery, with a blend of humor and history that has become Tom’s trademark.

Following the publication of  the Elf of Luxembourg, Tom turned to the medium of film to produce and direct the animated short, There be Monsters!, based on his short story of the same name.

Tom has also written the critically acclaimed and award winning Historical Fiction novel, Fission, based on his screenplay of the true story of scientist, Lisa Meitner, and the race for the atomic bomb. Fission the screenplay was named a finalist at the London Independent Film Festival. Prior to its publication in August, 2011, the novel was serialized for Tom’s Facebook fans.

Then Tom returned with Book 3 of the Alex and Jackie Adventures, Feathered: being a fairy tale. This fantasy story of Fairies and Vikings, which is set in Ireland, was published in December, 2012.

Tom is now working on a new animated short called Dancing Daisy Day.

“Yes, it’s true,” said Tom. “I live in Boston. I’ve also lived in Dallas, Miami, Phoenix, London (and some other English towns not familiar to Americans) and Luxembourg. But Boston, by far, has the more interesting drivers. ( A message to my Banker: Luxembourg is not in France!)”

“I don’t believe it,” said Alex.
