Tim Myers

Biography

I've been writing mysteries since 1993, and have published over 20 novels with Penguin/Berkley, Penguin/NAL, St. Martin's Press, and Kensington. I write under the names Tim Myers, Chris Cavender, Casey Mayes, Elizabeth Bright, Melissa Glazer, and more. Growing up, my favorite reads were traditional mysteries, with a slant toward cozies, and that's what I write!
