Tim C. Taylor
Tim C. Taylor is an author of science fiction. He was born in Colchester, England in 1970.
When he first thought of writing a story in the early naughties, he got a bit ahead of himself and searched Amazon for authors sharing his name. To find so many Tim Taylors already published was a crushing blow. Luckily his parents had foreseen this and provided him with a middle name. Now girded with a 'Middle C' the author saw early success published in print and online magazines before concentrating on writing novels. Recently he has been published in the Newcon Press anthologies: 'Shoes, Ships and Cadavers' and 'Further Conflicts'.
In Spring 2011 he launched an indie publisher of short stories, specialising in Sci Fi, horror, and fantasy: Greyhart Press.
In the real world, he is husband, Dad, sometime-brewer, and oftentime-builder of Lego constructs to his son's designs. After twenty years earning a living making software, he is now a full-time author. So expect to see much more from him soon.
