Tom Law was born in Glasgow a very long time ago. He migrated to Melbourne, Australia, with his parents in 1961 where he completed his secondary and tertiary education. He has been a poet, songwriter, teacher and builder of boats and stone houses.
In recent years he has lived in Indonesia, teaching in various educational institutions and travelling extensively throughout the archipelago (which he pronounces ‘archy pellargo’). Tom has two adult sons by his first marriage and is now remarried to an Indonesian with one daughter. His favourite haunt is the more remote forests, valleys, streams and chasms of the Highlands in Eastern Victoria, Australia.
Hobbies include sailing, folk music, writing, walking and dreaming … but mostly dreaming.
