I was born in Cobham, Kent, and spent my early years in West Africa and Ireland, until my family eventually settled in Leicestershire. When I was nine years old, I decided I wanted to be an archaeologist, in the mistaken belief that they spent their time digging up dinosaur bones. When I discovered what they actually did, and got over the disappointment of a life without dinosaurs,I never looked back. I went on my first dig at the age of twelve, and spent school holidays happily up to my ears in mud on sites in England and Scotland. I worked for most of my adult life in archaeology, and most recently worked as an archaeological illustrator for a commercial unit in Northamptonshire. I now write full time and use my background in archaeology ...more

I get to create characters, and worlds for them to inhabit, give them lives and problems, make good and bad things happen to them, and sometimes they become more real than the people around me. I write because I have to and I'm not happy when for whatever reason I can't write. (less)

One of the things I look forward to most at Christmas is a good ghost story. I enjoy them all year round, but in the darkness of a northern hemisphere winter, they take on a special resonance. I have my favourites - anything by MR James and several of Charles Dickens' short stories, as well as A Christmas Carol. But there is one story I read every year - it is part of my Christmas, even though... Read more of this blog post »

A very unusual story. I loved everything about it, from the characters to the descriptions of the cakes and pastries from the Swedish bakery, and having a ghost as the narrator. I really look forward to reading more of Tom McNeal's writing.

Pat Walsh Thank you so much, Northern! Crowfield Rising will bring all the loose ends together. Will and Shadlok find themselves in the middle of a fay war, and the Black Death comes to the abbey and villages, so things are not going to be easy for them and the people - and hobs - they care about. Thanks for reading the books. x

This wasn't addressed to me, but I am tooooooooooooo excited! Crowfield is an outstanding storyline, and I can't wait to see the third book in the series hit the shelves!

Pat Walsh Hello Jb,I'm really pleased that you like the Crowfield books. There is a third book to come and it'll finish off Will's story. Hopefully it'll be published towards the end of 2014. In the meanwhile, the first in a new short series featuring the hob will be out early in 2014. It's set 200 years after the Crowfield books, just after the Dissolution of the abbeys, and is part fantasy, part ghost story. I hope you like it! Pat x

Jb No matter how many other books I read, my mind always goes back to the Crowfield Abbey series, and what is going to happen to Will. I really hope there will be more in this series. <3 love these!! thank you.
