Tim Holmes

Biography

“Although I came to it late in life, writing was always in the blood,” he once told a friend, “and I now lead two lives, those of my fantasy characters, and that of the real me. And often I confuse the two.”

Tim Holmes was born in London, brought up in Geneva, Switzerland and educated in England. He eventually embarked on a thirty-five year career in the international wine industry, having learned his craft in Bordeaux and Burgundy as a ‘stagiare’ winemaker during university vacations.

After a stint in the Ministries of Agriculturs of those Eastern European nations assimilating their wine regimes with those of the EU Common Agricultural policy in the early 90s, and after a lifetime of travel, tasting and trading wines around the world for a company he founded with two Swiss friends in Zürich, Tim now lives in France and England where he dedicates his time to writing novels and short stories.
