Thomas David Parker was born in Bristol, but was quickly exiled to the Forest of Dean so his childhood could be shaped into an Enid Blyton novel. From a young age he discovered a joy of stories and adventure and was drawn to the realms of fantasy and the supernatural. His earliest influence was Terry Pratchett, but later joined by Neil Gaiman and M. R. James.
He currently lives in Bristol where he has begun writing short stories as a form of procrastination. One day he hopes to work up the courage to write his first novel.
