Tom Gleeson is an Irish writer and artist. He completed a Masters Degree in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins in London in 1998. He has written and directed several short films and more recently written a feature-length screenplay entitled "The Other Woman" about three middle-aged English sisters traveling across America: one has a secret life, one is living in denial, and one wants to experience life. In 2003 he published a book of his photographs entitled Dark Continent. He lives and works in New York City where he is currently putting the finishing touches to his first novel entitled Cougar about a post-punk existentialist and nihilist in New York's East Village who believes his life is over because he just turned thirty. His next project is a collection of short stories about desire, fear and denial called, Crazy Love.
