I'm an author of science fiction, born in Colchester, England in 1970.
When I first thought of writing a story in the early naughties, I got a bit ahead of myself and searched Amazon for authors sharing my name. To find so many Tim Taylors already published was a crushing blow. Luckily my parents had foreseen this and provided me with a middle name. Now girded with a 'Middle C', I had some early success at getting published in print and online magazines before concentrating on writing novels. Recently I've been published in the Newcon Press anthologies: 'Shoes, Ships and Cadavers' and 'Further Conflicts' alongside cool people like Dan Abnett (the UK's top selling Sci Fi author), Lauren Beukes (who's just won the Arthur C. Clarke Award), and Alan Moore (A comic guy. I enjoyed his 2000AD stories when I was younger. He's a nice guy with excellent taste in shoes!).
When I was made redundant in February 2011, a consequence of the global recession, my co-workers gave me a Kindle as a parting gift. "Oh," I thought. "E-books have finally arrived." So I started up an indie e-publishing business. After twenty years writing and managing software releases for a FTSE 100 company, I now do much the same thing with fiction as a writer, publisher, and freelance e-book designer.
In the real world, I'm a husband, Dad, sometime-brewer, and oftentime-builder of Lego constructs to my son's designs. I'm on a sabbatical from the software industry so I expect to be very busy with the reading, writing and publishing. As part of that, I hope to enjoy your stories on Wattpad and vice versa.
