He lives in Orpington with his wife, Nicky, and sons, Dylan and Jacob. In 2015 Tom’s Twitter account was one of twenty-five worldwide invited to have its tweets showcased in the Twitter Fiction Festival. He has had comedy sketches performed for BBC Radio 4, both nonfiction and fiction pieces published on The Classical and Londonist websites, and was a semi-finalist in the UK’s Channel 4-organised search for new writing, The Play's the Thing.
