About this author

I live in Maine with my beautiful wife and three amazing children. We share seven acres with one dog, two cats and a population of ducks that varies with the weather. I'm is a full-time corporate writer and novelist. My fiction and nonfiction have appeared in forums all around the globe. You can find my novels in paperback and ebook formats at all quality book retailers.

Though I'm sometimes referred to as "Maine's Other Author" (TM), I prefer just Tim.

"I loved this story. Such a great message of hope. "
The Santa Shop by Tim Greaton
"A nice Christmas feel-good story.


Categorising as suspense or thriller is wrong though, so if that is what you're looking for skip this one. It's good fiction, with a collection of decent characters (maybe a little one dimensional, very few flaws..." Read more of this review »

Topics Mentioning This Author

“The truth of life is that every year we get farther away from the essence that is born within us. We get shouldered with burdens, some of them good, some of them not so good. Things happen to us. Loved ones die. People get in wrecks and get crippled. People lose their way, for one reason or another. It's not hard to do, in this world of crazy mazes. Life itself does its best to take that memory of magic away from us. You don't know its happening until one day you feel you've lost something but you're not sure what it is. It's like smiling at a pretty girl and she calls you 'sir'. It just happens.”
Robert McCammon, Boy's Life

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately...”
