Tim Greaton

Biography

I live in Maine with my beautiful wife and three amazing children. We share 7-acres with 1 dog, 2 cats, and a population of ducks that varies with the weather. I'm a full-time corporate writer and novelist. My fiction, non-fiction and advertising work has appeared in forums all around the globe. A few months back, my novel "The Santa Shop¨ was republished to Kindle and Nook. My pre-release novel "From My Cold Young Fingers¨ (soon to be final-released as "Ripped From My Cold Young Fingers¨) is also available on Kindle. "Zachary Pill, The Dragon at Station End,¨ "Heroes With Fangs¨ and my horror novel "Ancestor¨ will also be available on Kindle in the next few months. My brother's publishing company refers to me as "Maine's Other Author TM¨ but I prefer just Tim :-).
