Renowned for his expert analysis and inimitable interviewing style, Tom has led ITV News coverage of all recent General Elections and regularly conducts exclusive interviews with the most influential figures in Westminster and the political arena.
Tom began his reporting career with ITV as Ireland Correspondent more than fifteen years ago, during which time he covered the unfolding peace process and wrote his first novel, Shadow Dancer. As Asia Correspondent, based in Hong Kong, he was shot and seriously wounded whilst covering a riot in Jakarta.

The Master of Rain was shortlisted for the Crime Writers' Association Steel Dagger for Best Thriller of the Year 2002, and both The White Russian and The God of Chaos for the CWA Historical Crime Novel of the Year.
Shadow Dancer was later made into a film starring Clive Owen, Gillian Anderson and Andrea Riseborough for which Tom wrote the screenplay. His script was nominated for Screenplay of the Year in the Evening Standard Film Awards.
