Welcome to my profile page. I am an indie author based in Windsor in UK.

In March 2018 I launched my third historical novel, Uther's Destiny. This is book three in A Light in the Dark Ages series, and follows:-
Book two - Ambrosius: Last of the Romans (2017)
Book one - Abandoned! (2015)

My first novel, Devil Gate Dawn, released in April 2016, is a thriller set in 2026 that predicts political chaos in a divided post-Brexit UK, and a dystopian Trump America.

Postcards from London, a book of short stories, was released in September 2017.
This follows my first book of short stories, Thames Valley Tales (2015).

In 2016 I published my first children's book, The Adventures of Charly Holmes, co-authored with my daughter, Cathy.

I’ve just re-published a new, longer second edition of Abandoned, book one in A Light in the Dark Ages series. It addresses the complaints at the brevity of the original novella that told the story of Marcus and the defence of Calleva. This is now incorporated into a longer story that charts Britannia’s troubled journey from abandonment by the Romans to choosing a king to organise their defence...

Linda Oliver Hi Tim

Many thanks for this. It's a great offer. The weather's set to turn cold, so this weekend's an ideal time to burrow into an engaging page turner!

Hi Rebecca, nice to e-meet you too! must get on this site more often, but I am making more time to read. Can I push a pdf review copy of my first novel on you?

Tim Walker Hi to my friends! Just a quick update to say 'thanks' to my beta readers for their feedback on the first three chapters of DEVIL GATE DAWN. I've made some changes and have now finalised it. I've also submitted it to Amazon for consideration for their Amazon Scout promotion programme for first novels, whereby readers vote by nominating books on the programme they like, and after 30 days Amazon choose the most popular and publish them! I'll let you know if I'm selected...
