The Crime Writers' Association

Debut Dagger 2014

Tom Keenan
The Father
shortlisted

Tom was born in Hamilton in Scotland, and has written just about all of his life. Over the past thirty years he has been a social worker in mental health. He writes text books, reports, and guidance for mental health professionals; however, it is in his literary world he feels he has found his passion. Through novels, short stories, plays, songs and poems, he has also found his voice and, he believes, a new career. The Father is his first major literary work; however, he is now seriously into a follow up.
