About Tim

timireland (4)

Growing up in Southern California, Tim Burgess was always fascinated by the 1960s surf culture. Though he was only a child, he could tell this was not a Beach Blanket Bingo world. Beneath the innocent surface of the sun and the sand lurked a dark and dangerous undercurrent. The setting, he realized, would be perfect for a mystery series. The Never-Ending Swell and California Son are the first two books in the Liam Sol Mystery Series.

Tim grew up in West Covina, CA. and graduated from Cal Poly, Pomona–Go Broncos!
His short stories have appeared in Thievesjargon.com and CrimeSceneScotland.com.

  3. First of all, Kris told me about your book. Then I bought it through my Nook, then I told my father-in-law about it, then he bought it….we’ll just keep paying it forward. Liam is a great character. It has to be an upward trajectory for him, I hope — poor guy has been through the wringer! The only criticism I have is that I wish it were 300 pages longer, but since you’re working on a sequel, I shall be patient. Keep ’em coming, Tim.
