As a child, Tom Walker wrote stories about aeroplanes in his head, but it took a global pandemic and national lockdown before he started to write them down.
An avid reader with a lifelong passion for history, Tom saw service in Iraq, Afghanistan and West Africa as a Royal Air Force officer. This provided a rich collection of experiences that he draws upon in his writing. His debut novel, 'Out of the Desert', was published by Sharpe Books in 2021 and follows junior RAF aircrew Peter Denhay and Charlie Kendrick through the battles, loves, and losses of the early Second World War.
The first in the 'Wings of Victory' series, 'Out of the Desert' was described as, "A novel which grips both in and out of the cockpit" by Richard Foreman.
Originally from Plymouth in Devon, when not on active service, Tom divides his time between Oxfordshire and rural Wiltshire.
