Tom Moorhouse is a strange hybrid being, half children’s author and half research ecologist (an entity probably not called an ‘authologist’). His debut novel The River Singers won the 2015 Quality Fiction category of the North Somerset Teachers’ Book Awards. Its sequel is The Rising.

His latest, Trickster, is a ‘ratrospective’ (and no, he won’t stop making that joke).

In 2016 he gathered fellow authors, Lantana Publishing and a crowdfunding campaign to create A Wisp of Wisdom, giving Cameroonian children back their stories.

In March 2017 his first sequel to The Wind in the Willows (called A Race for Toad Hall) was published. He’s not at all nervous about it.

He works for Oxford University and writes for himself.
