Timothy's story is too long to tell and not very interesting, so lets fast forward to his involvement in this book. It started with a severe traumatic brain injury (I do not advise cleaning your own gutters even on a one story house) Fortunately, he lives in Atlanta just a short ambulance ride away from one of the best brain doctors in the country and near Sheppard Center, one of the best facilities in the world to treat brain injuries. After a week in an induced coma, multiple weeks at the Sheppard Center, and another few months on outpatient therapy, Timothy went to DragonCon, brain still seriously on the mend. While there Mark Sheppard, (Firefly, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, et al) no relation to the Sheppard Center, spoke alone on a panel. While discussing Joss Whedon and the Whedonverse, Mark made the comment '"If you have something to say, a story or a script, just write it down. It'll never happen if you don't write it down." Timothy then decided to write a book. Fast forward to New Mexico September 2010. While keeping a running journal of his crazy, figuring out his brain again journal, Timothy put some strange ideas into nature, people, life, and everything. This journal eventually morphed into a blueprint for the Fires of Pi series. Over three years of writing and working in the real world, book one was finally completed.
Timothy is typing this personal Bio (in the third person, come on, brain injury) again in New Mexico at Ojo Caliente. Timothy was able to accomplish this feat with the support of his family, his EAV neighborhood, and his friends both far and near.

An average day for bartender Ellison until the first of the attacks. Neach has some newfound, atypical abilities, and someone is taking notice. He will be on the run from some, befriend others, and question the notion of trust while becoming the force from within. What path will he choose? Power? Honor? Indifference? What about the price involved? That is a choice he will have to make on his own.
