Timothy Burgess grew up reading The Hardy Boys, Chip Hilton, Rick Brant, and The Three Investigators. He couldn’t get enough of them. One rainy day his parents brought home a book by Raymond Chandler, and that was it–he was hooked on mysteries. He always wanted to give novel writing a shot, so he took a deep breath, and then he took a few more, and then one more for good measure, and went at it. The Never-Ending Swell: A Liam Sol Mystery is Tim’s first book. His short stories have appeared in Thievesjargon.com and CrimeSceneScotland.com.
Tim grew up in West Covina, CA. and is a graduate of Cal Poly, Pomona. He is a recovering Catholic, but realizes that he’ll never be able to shake the Irish Catholic guilt that follows him around like an annoying friend. The truth is, Tim kind of likes having it around. Go figure.
He is currently working on his second Liam Sol mystery.
