Tom took a while to get into reading. He was more concerned with his hobby, football. But once he realised you could read about your hobby and it still counted as reading, his love of words took off. Tom was born in Leeds, has had three dads and his first job was as a milkman. His hobby now is fell running, which is running up and down hills and mountains. He is slow. But not the slowest. (Apart from once.) He also likes history, hence the books about WW1 and WW2.
