Tom had always drunk. Initially it was to escape the drudge of school and the distress of his rapidly disintegrating family, but as his career in journalism took off, so his alcohol consumption turned into a full-blown obsession. Having first run amok in London, it was landing the seemingly plum job of nightlife columnist at the New York Post that saw his life spiral completely out of control. Tom treated Manhattan as his Martini, until one day - hungover and alone - he realised he was totally out of his depth and, what's more, he didn't even care. What Did I Do Last Night? is the sad, funny and brutally honest tale of his descent into uncontrollable excess.
Tom is a freelance writer for magazine's such as Men's Health, Best Life and GQ. He trained as journalist at the Daily Telegraph and the Evening Standard and then moved to New York, where he became the bar columnist at the New York Post. He is currently based in the West of Ireland but visits his native UK regularly.
