Welcome to my Goodreads page. I'm an independent author living near Windsor in the UK. To date, I have written and self-published thirteen books. Historical fiction is my main genre for both reading and writing.

My latest book is Guardians at the Wall, published in June 2021, an historical dual timeline action and adventure novel set at Hadrian's Wall. It's about archaeologists who uncover artefacts that connect them to the life of a Roman centurion in second century Britannia.

In June 2020, Arthur Rex Brittonum, was published - the fifth and final instalment in A Light in the Dark Ages series. This is part two of my re-imagining of King Arthur, and follows on from 2019's Arthur Dux Bellorum.

Guardians at the Wall Character Profiles

In June 2021, author Tim Walker published his latest novel – a dual timeline historical novel, Guardians at the Wall. The novel consists of two parallel stories, of equal weight, each with a main character or protagonist. They are both men, based at the same location (Vindolanda at Hadrian’s Wall), but that is all they have in common. Each story is set in different periods, one contemporary, the o

Tony Flood You may like to read GUILTY WIVES which is a unique story that takes a group of fun-loving wives from the ultimate in luxury to a nightmare existence behind bars after they are accused of murder. James Patterson comes up with the worst kind of betrayal.
You may also like to check out my new crime thriller STITCH UP! - KILLER OR VICTIM? which has received glowing endorsements and reviews. The Sun newspaper's Stuart Pink says it has "a riveting plot and electrifying double twist" while author Francis Wait says it is a MUST for everyone who likes Peter James and Jeffrey Archer thrillers. Best wishes, Tony Flood, author of celebrity book My Life With The Stars - Sizzling Secrets Spilled!, fantasy adventure Secret Potion and spicy crime thriller Triple Tease.

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!

Tim 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!
