However, a career as an advertising copywriter intervened, and Tim put his creative writing career on hold for approximately twenty-five years.
But his writing bug, although dormant, never expired, and when Tim found himself freed from the shackles of the ad industry he set to work and wrote his first full-length novel "Final Passage". Released in 2009, the title became a Top Ten download on Barnes & Noble.
It was followed by "The Abigail Affair" in 2010, which reached No 7 overall in the UK Kindle Bestsellers chart, selling 15,000 copies. Tim's latest Caribbean thriller is "The Shoot", published in November 2011.
