Thomas Docherty - Author

About the Author

Thomas never thought he would end up writing stories. At school he wasn’t good at spelling and reading was a real struggle. Luckily his Mum and Dad read to him and took him to the library where he spent hours looking at Asterix books. Even so, it wasn’t until many years later, after he had been through school and Art College, that he wrote his first children’s book. It was called ‘Pip and the Lost Dream’ and it is published in Spain, Taiwan and South Africa. Now Thomas does most of his work in the UK and is based in Bristol, where he lives with his wife Helen and daughter Lucia. Whenever possible he likes to go along to schools and libraries to talk to the kids about his work and help them write and draw their own stories.
