Tim Cashmore


Tim is 46 although, with the aid of state-of-the-art digital image manipulation, he manages to look considerably older. Despite being the wrong side of middle age, Tim avoids acting like a proper grown-up where possible. After having an imaginary cat for some years, Tim now resides in Norfolk with his partner of 15 years, a real cat and a very barky dog.

Previously, Tim has written, directed and edited An Early Morning Pint, a short Halloween film.

Rude Food: May Contain Nuts, Tim’s first cook book, is also available. Tim has been a vegetarian for most of his life and is already part-way through writing his second vegetarian cookery book, with the working title of Get Stuffed!

As Tim's knowledge of history was somewhat embarrassing, he researched all the presidents of the United States since the Constitution. The resulting work, his American History Presidents Poem. Since Trump's bewildering election, Tim's been too depressed to update the poem to include him as it still seems like one of those bad dreams you have when you've eaten too much cheese and inhaled a bathroom cleaning product without adequate ventilation.

Tim has previously worked on the pilot screenplay for a supernatural romance and is currently developing ideas for short films and full-length screenplays, including a thriller called Dog Eat Dog and a horror called The Meat Market. Tim plans to upload more of his recipes, poetry and scripts to Smashwords, although if there's a tasty looking slice of treacle tart around, the cake wins.

Smashwords Interview

What gets you through the day?
Breathing seems to be doing the trick, interspersed with drinking tea and eating cake!
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I was immersed so completely in the characters' world that I remember re-reading Roald Dahl's Charlie And The Chocolate Factory numerous times at school. I remember being told off for not trying a new book, although to me, if a book is just as enjoyable on a second, third or 23rd read, it's clearly a fantastic work. Re-reading it as an adult a few years ago, I found it moved me even beyond the experience of reading it as a child. A truly magical work from a brilliantly creative mind.
