Tom Taylor was born near Morphett Vale, South Australia, on Dec, 1st, 1954, and was raised on
the family farm, Thrush Grove, which was established during early colonization of the state, and
lived there with his family until 1977.
Possessing a penchant for adventure, he has embarked on several working tours of Australia,
which, together with his rather wide-ranging and sometimes harrowing experiences, has provided
him with a rich source of material from which to draw inspiration.
In 1983, he retired from work-a-day life and began writing, as much to satisfy his creative bent as to
delve a few of the many subjects which had always interested him.
"The whole question of existence, being human and living in a world of seemingly limitless
possibility is far more food for thought than I could digest in several lifetimes," he says.
Tom presently resides near the coast, south of Adelaide, sharing life with his partner, Janet, and
is currently busy as a musician while preparing his next three paperbacks for publication.
His agile mind and quirky sense of humour are capable of imbuing new interest into almost any
subject, and his irresistible curiosity and fascination with life translates into compelling story-telling.
Let those who have become disenchanted, cynical and jaded by every-day existence be
heartened. Here are a new set of glasses through which to view your universe.Mauve-coloured
