Born in Zimbabwe, Tim spent his early years there, in the UK and then Hong Kong. He was educated in boarding schools in the UK and spent his school breaks in Germany. Although he has written for much of his life, he began writing seriously when he joined a creative writing group in 2014. He published his first book, Girl Hunter (a novelette), and Angel Avenger (a novel), in 2019. He has just completed a second novel, and his first book, Girl Hunter, is being translated and published in Greece.

Now a full time novelist, Tim is also an historian and amateur filmmaker. Since 2005 he has lived in South West Wales where he enjoys walking, swimming in the sea, reading, and of course writing.
