Tom Huddleston divides his time between writing epic adventure stories, reviewing films for Time Out magazine and playing in a noisy folk-rock band.
His first novel The Waking World, a magical fantasy reimagining the King Arthur legends in post-apocalyptic Yorkshire, came out in 2013 through David Fickling Books. In the meantime, Tom has been writing entries in the Star Wars: Adventures in Wild Space series for Egmont, a standalone series for 7-10 year olds set in the thrilling space-operatic ‘Star Wars’ universe. The first two books in his current dystopian adventure series for middle grade readers (age 10-13), FLOODWORLD and DUSTROAD, were published by Nosy Crow in November 2019 and March 2020 respectively. He is also writing the new Warhammer Adventures: Realm Quest fiction series for middle grade readers, set in the Age of Sigmar Warhammer Universe, for Games Workshop.
Tom’s extracurriculars include having helped run the annual Twin Peaks UK Festival, pitching in on the Stoke Newington Literary Festival (where he hosts the Game of Thrones Pub Quiz), putting on occasional pop-up film screenings and playing with his band The No Sorrows, who’ve just released their first LP.
