RAF Museum’s Children’s Writer in Residence

Tom_launch_FWWI am proud to be the RAF Museum’s children’s writer in residence since the RAF’s 100th anniversary.

I have written a children’s series with the RAF called Wings, published by Barrington Stoke.

Find out more about the three books in the Wings series here:
1 Flyboy
2 Spitfire
3 Typhoon

“Your books are still massive favourites with the boys especially the Wings series.” Birkdale School

“Tom is the RAF Museum’s Writer in Residence. His close relationship with the museums and his obsessive eye for detail mean that I was not at all surprised that his Wings books are both highly authentic and hugely exciting. These are Biggles books for the 21st century.” Phil Clayton, Education Office at RAF Museum

And my series Rugby Academy was inspired by children of serving RAF personnel, and I used their input to get life as a Service child right.

In the lead up to the Royal Air Force centenary in 2018, I worked with the museum’s visitors to help them get the best out of their experience.  You can find out more about that here and an interview with me about it here.Tom_talking_to_School_children

The Flying Prince

The flying PrincePrince Alexander Obolensky was a three-year-old when his parents had to flee Russia to escape their certain death in the 1917 revolution. And it seemed that the Prince was always destined to fly.
At school in England he became a speedy winger on the rugby field. Age 19 he made his debut for his new country, scoring the two tries that meant England defeated New Zealand for the first time. Both tries were scored at high speed, he was unstoppable. Months later he joined the RAF, volunteering to fight the Germans even before the war had begun. In the air, on the wing, this is the story of the Flying Prince.  Download  here my special story The Flying Prince, written for the RAF Museum Big Draw.
