Born a proud Yorkshireman before World War Two, Tom Robson grew up amid the history, traditions and beauty of the New Forest in southern England, returning there to begin a forty-year career in education.
He and his family immigrated to Canada in 1971. From Montreal, Tom moved east to Nova Scotia while his first family went west. It was then he began writing, with the encouragement of his second wife, Barb, who has put up with his indulgence for almost forty years.
Over the years, he has amassed an eclectic collection of plays, poems, stories, fact-based fiction and one award-winning novel for mid-teens. Until recently, publication has avoided him. This book is preceded by his contribution to the anthology, "Out of the Mist, 22 Atlantic Canadian Ghost Stories."
Tom no longer believes that self-publication is the last refuge of the rejected writer. He does believe that publishing companies’ autocratic editors are a vanishing breed and that the business of life is the acquisition of memories.
“It's good to have these stories written and published for when the memory fades,” Tom says.
