Born in Salford in 1943, Thomas had a standard education in primary, then secondary schools. Throughout his formative years, he developed many interests. With the mellowing years, art and the English language came to the fore. He is passionate about words: their correct spellings, meanings and applications. Foreign names fascinate him! Thomas has developed a love of writing short stories involving people with problems to solve, e.g. Nanook (the Inuit), Father John McVey, Captain James Miller, Salvatore Rivera, and others.
