Timothy McGivney can still remember his first attempt at writing a story. He completed maybe a paragraph, of which the first sentence is still burned into memory: The springs beneath the mattress shook furiously up and down as she awaited the final climax.
With the help of a fellow writing partner (Hey, Paula!), little Timmy was just thirteen years old when he scribbled that sentence onto a piece of paper out on the cold, cruel, and lonely school grounds of St. Williams Elementary. Over twenty-five years later, he’s proud to say he’s written not one, but two books!
Tim resides in Palm Springs, California, is single, and currently dating (his TiVo).

Hello out there!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything but I’ve been writing some short stories lately and two of them have just been published! Some Holiday Cheer is a warped holiday bedtime tale and can be found in 100 Doors to Madness, edited by David Nell and my zombie short, Si or No? is part of the inaugural issue of Beware the Dark, a horror magazine edited by Paul Fry.

K.N. is 33% done with 100 Doors to Madness: I don't know what Some Holiday Cheer is doing in this anthology, but it's glorious! He’d done a bang-up job on the decorations too. Made a run to Wal- Mart and filled his cart with a cluster fuck of holiday mishmash. I-I'm in love, Timothy McGivney.

Rob Rosen Timothy, hi. Hope all is well. Since we’re Goodreads friends, I thought I’d share my latest novel, Midlife Crisis, with you.

"Rob Rosen does madcap gay humor better than anyone else writing today. Midlife Crisis is no exception." - Neil Plakcy, author of The Mahu Investigations

I hope you can pick up a copy. As a special thanks for your time, feel free to message me on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/therobrosen) for a free PDF copy of any of my other 9 novels, which you can find here: http://www.therobrosen.com

All the best,

Rob Rosen
