Thomas A. Squire was a regular guy doing a regular job when his far from regular wife gave him a call with some news. By the end of that five-minute conversation, he had decided to leave his regular job and follow his wife on a posting to Ho Chi Minh City and San Francisco - as a trailing spouse cum stay-at-home dad.

Dad Abroad is a light-hearted sharing of a journey that is not usually travelled by men. This book covers the highs and lows, the foibles and contemplations of a regular guy as he navigates new countries, hangs with the kids, mingles with the mums, submits more completely to domestic chores, and tries his best to avoid isolation and talking about nappy changes … and his search for meaning and "flow" in the process.

The Author
Thomas A. Squire was born and bred in Wellington, New Zealand, where he met his wife-to-be, a Singaporean working in Wellington at the time. Following her when she returned to Singapore, this city has been his home base since 1998. A pilot and mathematician by training, a tech worker by trade, Thomas's career is interrupted from time to time by his wife's work postings, which have taken them and their children from Singapore to Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and San Francisco, and back to Singapore. During these postings, he typically takes on the stay-at-home dad role … with dalliances in side gigs, such as writing books.
Thomas is also the author of Always A Commando: The Life of Singapore Army Pioneer Clarence Tan (Marshall Cavendish Editions, 2019).
