About Me

About Me

My name is Tom Housden. I am an author and actor. I live in a village called Otford in Kent, which is the perfect setting for my writing, I love taking my Jack Russell out for walks, which for me is a good way to get inspiration, no matter the genre that I write about. Ideas pop into my head at all times, so I carry a notebook around with me.

I have Cerebral Palsy. Basically, all it means is that I am a bit wobbly! I don’t let it get me down though. Embrace Life is my motto. Which is why I am writing. I love it, and I am seizing the day. After all, it feels good to do something that you love.

There is a story in everyone, its just that most people don’t write them down. So, my advice is to write them down. And, remember, whether writing for pleasure, or if you want to try and make a career out of it, enjoy! Never give up – life’s too short!

I am learning all the time – I am still doing a mixture of face to face and online courses. I do know my craft, much more than when I started, but there is always room for improvement, no matter at which level you are.
