Today it’s my great pleasure to introduce fellow Crooked Cat author Tom Halford to you. Tom has sent me a great photo and it looks like he’s really enjoying his book reading. If you grab your own copy, you will find out why! I have this book on my kindle and can’t wait to begin the first page now. Tom’s YouTube channel is worth visiting if you are a reader or writer as he posts lost of informative videos there too.
Tom Halford sandwiches his writing time between a busy work and home schedule. He and his wife, Melissa, have two kids, both of whom are also storytellers. Their daughter, who is 5, has had a play performed by The Story Pirates in New York City. Their son, who is two, can recite all of The Three Little Pigs.
Crime fiction with a twist of black comedy is Tom’s passion. His novel Deli Meat is a dark and disturbing work that features serial killers, a cult, and unexpected twists at every turn. His short-stories have been short-listed and long-listed for the CBC Literary Prizes, which is a national competition in Canada.
Holding a PhD in English Literature, Tom also studies fiction. He is currently working on a nonfiction piece about how the Scottish filmmaker Tom Gentle has adapted a short-story titled “In the Fall” by the Cape Breton author Alistair MacLeod.
Tom lives on a remote island in the North Atlantic, where it begins to snow in October and doesn’t stop until May. That island is called Newfoundland. It’s home.

Thanks for joining us Denise. Are you currently writing a new book?
This is the first time I haven’t started a new book after finishing one. Not sure where I’m going next, but I am still working on getting my poetry book out and a new christmas short. Still have a kid’s book to get out that been in editing for a while. What about you?
Wow! That’s a lot of work. I’m just in edits for my latest book and am about to start a new manuscript for NaNoWriMo.
Great article…funny, pithy and informative. Made me smile.
