Tom Bromley

Tom Bromley is an author, editor and ghostwriter. He has written eight books under his own name, both fiction and non-fiction, ghosted a further seven titles, including Sunday Times top ten bestsellers, and has edited over seventy books.

Tom's novels include Half A World Away, described by Jonathan Coe as 'a shrewd and ingenious riff on modern relationships . . . a comic gem with a serious undertow'. His most recent books are the popular culture memoirs Wired for Sound and All in the Best Possible Taste. The former was described by Will Hodgkinson, The Times' chief rock critic, as 'a joy'; the latter was a
Daily Mail Book of the Week.

Tom spent over a decade working in publishing as a copywriter, commissioning editor and publisher, and continues to work for both publishers and literary agencies in a consulting capacity. He teaches creative writing at Wiltshire College and Salisbury Arts Centre, and acts as a mentor for, among others, the Literary Consultancy, Adventures in Fiction and the Falmouth University MA in Professional Writing. He has an MA in Creative Writing himself, from Bath Spa University.
