ABOUT THE AUTHOR - T.P.CONCANNON
"Tom - An English Irishman "  was Tom’s retirement project, completed just before his sudden death.  Originally written using pseudonyms the manuscript was reworked by his widow, Dee, and became the first publishing project for the newly-formed Watermead Publishing.  It is the story of a good Catholic man - husband, father, grandfather - and inspiration to the 'Watermead' mission.
 
Tom had left school aged 13 having missed much of his education through his chronic asthma.  The doctors had repeatedly said it was unlikely he would survive his next attack, let alone reach adulthood.  But he did, and his love of story-telling determined him to a regime of self-education that would allow him to successfully express on paper all his imagination held.  At the age of 40 he saw his first historical novel accepted for publication and a further six novels published over the following years. Tom’s story is one of quiet perseverance and determination, of rejection and acceptance, of love for his wife and family and for the faith that sustained him.  He was nick-named the ‘English-Irishman’ by a Polish work colleague – a title that certainly summed up his loyalty to the country he called home and the Celtic heritage of which he was so proud.  We have been told by people who have read this book that they have found it inspirational.
