Welcome to the official website of Tom Melsen

Dear reader,

Never would I have imagined that ‘Aftermath’ would be picked up on by so many people. I’ve been working on this collection of poetry for nearly two years and to have it seen published in Europe and the United States of America has been a miracle. Aftermath can also be read inside the British Library, where it will be preserved for future generations. This makes it a part of the nation’s heritage. A long-cherished dream became reality last year. I wholeheartedly would like to thank everyone who purchased a book. Your support has not been unnoticed and I could not have done this without you. Much love, Tom
