Tom Mazzone is the author of the West Dublin Series, a humorous social satire set in Ireland as the credit crunch of 2008 changed gears. Having worked with the public for over thirty years, Tom feels qualified to put certain types of people into small constricting boxes and then flog them for sport, for their own good and everyone else’s. It’s his way of giving back.

The second book, Verdant With Envy, is about a passports-for-cash scam, and will be released in the new coming year, 2016, where he’s pretty certain to upset certain people yet again, but certainly much worse.

Tom lives in Clane, Co. Kildare Ireland with his wife Deirdre.

I've just started editing The second book in the Series "Verdant With Envy."

It's a bout a passports for cash scam AND a metaphor for the over consuming lazy Western world losing its competitive edge and power grip on world affairs by the determination and rebirth of Eastern competitiveness at all costs and how ridiculous financial instruments have been invented to keep them at bay for as long as possible. It's also about a big fat, petty, insecure, mean, racist, bitch...With a few laughs along the way.

My editor will be out of the country for November but with some luck it should be ready for March 2016.(less)
