About Tom Davies

Tom was born in the south-east of England (even he hesitates to use the phrase 'grew up'), and has been writing bizarre stories since he was able to hold a pen. He's lived in East Sussex, Kent, Somerset and France, and spent time in a variety of other parts of the UK for reasons too ridiculous to get into here (some involving women, but most involving work).
He's a writer in his spare time, of which he has lots in the winter and virtually none in the summer. Given a chance he'll talk your leg off about whatever is pinging around in his overactive brain.

He'd love it if someone made him a facebook fan page, but knows it's highly unlikely.

He also feels a bit weird for writing this in the third person, but he won't let it bother him too much.

An engrossing read that fills me with a sense of enchantment and desire to head for the misty hills. I agree a longer story is wanted, but I feel the brevity of this tale impacts positively on its potential to feel true. Looking forward to reading more!

A good, fun read. Sometimes ancient lore speaks best for itself. The author doesn't twist history so much as let's it live, highly suggest reading this.

I enjoyed this story. Thank you for writing it. The old man was spot on. The only thing I would change is the type of bird. I think hawks are wonderful but if I were choosing a bard bird shouldn't it be one that has a recognizable song?

Great short story! Would recommend to all. Only wish it could have been longer, would love to spend more time with these caracters and followed them further.

I read this E-Book on advice from a friend and found it to be easy reading, thought provoking and well written. My only criticism is that it could have been longer, whilst the story was suited to the short format, I would have welcomed more of the same. I liked the mix of first person and fantasy. I would recommend it.
