Out Now!

In March 2016, I was diagnosed with inoperable, stage four throat cancer. My treatment began immediately, with intensive six-week courses of both chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

I detailed my battle against cancer on a new blog – – which I have now adapting as a book of the same name. Cover artwork by the brilliant Nigel Parkinson.

What people are saying about Tommy…

“Thank you for a brilliant day! I had a great time but most importantly all our students enjoyed the time they spent with you, be it your talk or the writing workshops.

It was amazing to see some usually disaffected boys being so completely engaged in writing and being creative. I was so impressed with the way that you, almost imperceptibly, changed your delivery style to address the kind of students in front of you so that all were engaged and involved. Your style and manner with the students was brilliant.

The children, so I’ve been told by other members of staff, were buzzing about your visit so I thank you again for all that you did with our students.”
