Meet the Author

Tom Cutler, the son of a sex therapist and a sometime Dominican friar, spent his early manhood in a desultory study of Fine Art and Philosophy at a cloistered university. He began his professional career with a number of false starts as a teacher, set designer, doublebass player, speechwriter, printer, toyshop manager, lyricist, wine waiter, puppet maker, typographer, magazine editor, portrait painter, radio broadcaster, cartoonist, ghost writer, and practicing magician before leaving the rat-race to spend more time with his slippers.

Tom is the author of several humorous books, including 211 Things a Bright Boy Can Do, and two acclaimed songbooks for children. He is the proud owner of a not unlarge handlebar mustache and is a member of the Handlebar (Mustache) Club of Great Britain. In his spare time Tom enjoys murdering Bach on the guitar and staring out to sea.
