Timothy Marsh is a fiction novelist who cut his teeth writing short stories in the speculative fiction genre. His first novel, The Ghost of Newsangtown, is a thriller suited to young adult readers and is set in a contemporary city. His next novel, Tiphany Cuts Loose, is a rollicking sea epic set in a 17th century still populated with witch doctors, zombies, vampires, and clockwork soldiers. As an Australian born in the late sixties, his voice is both direct and laconic. Because the protagonists from his first two novels are female, he utterly fails to see how his gender has effected his writing.
Timothy lives in Cambodia with his partner and considers it legitimate to say he is a full-time writer even though considerable amounts of his time are spent at the beach, and learning the local language. Social justice, environmental issues, and the efficiency of systems all push Timothy to follow politics and advocate for better policy through social media. He also finds playing instruments, dabbling in art and writing software all compete for a slice of his time. Sometimes he does a bit of cooking.
