Thomas Brunstrøm

Thomas Brunstrøm (1977) is an author, freelance journalist, film critic and podcast host - and real-life dad to Sally and Eddie.

Thomas and Thorbjørn used to live next door to each other in an apartment block in Copenhagen when their children were small. One evening on the balcony after a few (too many) glasses of red wine, they got talking about the amount of dull picture books they had to go through on a weekly basis to entertain their children. Why were dads in those stories always so boring? They could not recognise themselves at all. And then the idea for Sally's Dad was conceived. And thank God for that, because they turned out to be right: Sally's Dad is entertainment for both children and their parents in equal measure.
