A Bit About Tim
I’ve always been passionate about storytelling and impressed by the influence it has on people and the decisions they make in life. I love engaging with the projects I work on, diving headfirst into the research, investigation, and production of stories I feel are worth writing about. Before I even put my thoughts down, I think about what message I want to share in my stories and how it will connect with the audience. Each unique idea has some kind of meaning, whether it is a fiction novel, sci-fi drama, YA adventure, western, or non-fiction guidebook. My ultimate goal is to have every reader to resonate with the story and love it.
I am a curious and proactive Author, interested in preserving the foundations set by classical literature by adapting them to modern themes and trends. Creating something new yet timeless is my mission. I hope people will people still love my work one hundred years from now. Stories are what bring us together. Our ability to use words to create different worlds, achieve the impossible, or inspire others is what gives us hope and strength in this world. I hope to inspire others with my words.
Tim’s Past and Recent Writing
When I first started writing professionally back in 2001, I would have never guessed that I’d be sitting here having completed as many books and screenplays as I have, let alone one. Working on them has led to some incredibly challenging yet fabulously rewarding experiences. Check out my past and recent writing below.
I have a vivid imagination and live in a fantasy world. Several years back, I had an idea to write a saga for children that chronicle the adventures of Merlin's grandson through space and time. Merlin's grandson, Zebulon Finnegan finds out that he is part of a superhuman race that protects the universe and is thrust on an intergalactic adventure to different worlds in search of Merlin's hidden artifacts.
Fiction & Non-Fiction Books
At an early age I was introduced to goal setting and reaching for ultimate success. I apply an ultra-focused mentality and never-give-up attitude in everything I do. Success and motivation are key elements to achieving your own dreams and goals. I wrote several fiction novels and success and motivational guidebooks. Many of the ideas in these books come from personal experiences that have shaped who I am and led to the success in my life.
I worked at Blockbuster Video for three years in college and watching tons of movies in all genres sparked my love of movies. Since then, I have been fascinated with the film industry and always wanted to write a script. In 2015, I added screenwriting to my repertoire and immersed myself in the craft. I took several screenwriting classes and worked with a Hollywood screenwriting consultant and content creator as my mentor. We worked together on the development of my scripts. I have four completed feature film scripts and one TV pilot script. I am currently working on several other spec scripts.
