Thomas Edward Ogden was born, raised and currently resides in Great Torrington, Devon. He studied Creative Writing at Bath Spa University for three years between 2008-11, primarily writing short-stories, but also dabbling in poetry, biographical non-fiction and flash fiction. His work encompassed comedy, romance, horror and surrealism. Open to Get Inside is almost an amalgamation of these themes and is his first published piece of work – Askance are delighted to include it in Positional Vertigo. He’s currently focusing on writing more short stories but hopes to write novels in the future.
