Tom Jamieson moved to London from Australia in 1990 where he decided to try his hand at writing for BBC Radio. Luckily they liked his work and he's been writing for shows such as The News Quiz and other topical sketch shows ever since. Tom also writes for television programmes such as Dead Ringers, and his main job since 1999 has been writing for Private Eye. Tom first started writing for children when he co-wrote the children's sitcom Scoop for CBBC between 2009 and 2011. Now he is turning his hand to children's books and Sproutzilla Versus Christmas is Tom's first picture book with Macmillan.
