Biography

Tom Brown lives in Crystal Palace, South London, and likes to write novels. He doesn’t have a grand plan, preferring to ward off success by writing about whatever interests him at the time.

His first book, the genre-busting So Long, Shakespeare, threw together two of his keenest passions – Shakespeare and Star Wars – in a ‘deliciously playful science-fiction satire’ (Around the Globe magazine) about the identity of the world’s greatest playwright. His second novel, the macabre historical thriller Strange Air, was written after he heard about the Victorian skeletons that lurk in a railway carriage beneath Crystal Palace Park, and the air-powered railway experiment that led them to be there.

Currently, he is working on a new historical story set in Crystal Palace, and also developing a new comic novel.

  1. Really, who doesn’t love Shakespeare and Star Wars? It’s about time someone decided to mash them together and mine for gold!

    • Well that’s exactly what I thought! In their way, two of the most influential bodies of work in western culture… Thanks for your interest.
