Timothy D. Tims


Timothy D. Tims was born in Altus, Oklahoma and has lived there his entire life. Married to his childhood sweetheart, Amber, the two have one son, a beautiful daughter-in-law, and two grandsons. A lifelong member of the First Baptist Church, Timothy has always been involved in all areas of the church. Currently he plays guitar in the church praise band, but he has been a part of television ministry, choirs, a Sunday school teacher, and has sat on numerous committees.
Two years in the making, The Manifestation of Caleb Lewis is his first book, and he felt compelled to write it. “As a Christian man, some parts of the book make me uncomfortable. I would look up at God as I was writing sometimes and say ‘Really?’ But God has a way of bringing us out of our comfort zone to do something that makes no sense whatsoever. I don’t know, I knew I was supposed to write this book and that’s what I did. I learned a long time ago not to get into a boxing match with God. The Manifestation of Caleb Lewis is a novel about God’s grace and forgiveness, no matter what we have done in the past. My Aunt Linda, knowing I was uneasy with some parts of the book, told me, ‘there is more sex and violence in the Bible than in your book. Quit worrying about it.’ So…there ya go.

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Hmmm. Not counting grade school, the first book I remember reading was The Scarlet Letter, great book.
How do you approach cover design?
I wanted a simple design. So many designs today are so busy, it it can be hard to figure out the title of the book. I just went with a Glossy Black cover with white writing, can't get much simpler than that.
