I was born and grew up in Northern Ireland, in the historic city of Derry – Londonderry aptly coined ‘Stroke City’. ‘So – where do you come from, Tom?’ I hear you ask…’
I live in the West Midlands of England in the attractive village of Kinver and write novels. Developing an e-book/pod publishing venture (TJB BOOKS) is a big challenge and eats into my writing time. Only myself to blame for that though!

Following publication of my crime thriller ‘TOO SMART TO DIE’ featuring cop DCI Matt Proctor, my second novel in the DCI Matt Proctor series is now published. This time Proctor’s murder investigations take him into the deadly world of sport’s match/spot-fixing gambling syndicates, (titled ‘IN IT FOR THE MONEY’). I plan writing a Matt Proctor series.
My international political thriller ‘SARCOPHAGUS’ is set mainly in Ukraine with ex-army sapper protagonist Greg Stevens coerced into espionage and combating a ‘dirty bomb’ threat.
‘THE ZEPPELIN OF KINVER EDGE’ is an illustrated short fiction based on the German Zeppelin raids on England in World War 1 (1916).
All books available as print and e-books
My short stories have been published in anthologies with some radio broadcasts and one act plays professionally performed in West Midlands theatres/arts venues. (See ‘PUBLICATIONS PLAYS’ page)
