Thomas Carswell is a human male currently residing in a small, coastal town in the United Kingdom. He is the proud owner of a BA Hons degree in Dance Studies from Roehampton University, an achievement that has left him with crippling debt and has done little to advance his career prospects or social standing. Unperturbed, he recently embarked on a course of study through the Open University with the aim of achieving an MA in English and is quoted as doing “quite well”.
Thomas has held and disliked a variety of different jobs during his life including paperboy, barman, sales assistant, care assistant, teacher, nanny, student nurse, gardener, and print finisher. He is a qualified practitioner of sports massage and fully licensed to purchase and use chemical pesticides, although he frequently does neither. He currently runs his own business selling second-hand furniture from, what was described by one teenage observer as, “a waste of a shop”.
Thomas writes to vent his frustrations, give voice to his questionable morals and generally keep himself sane.
