Meet the Author

Timothy-V. Birch was born in London and almost immediately moved with his airline company family to Beirut, Lebanon. He spent the next 18 years of his life traveling around the globe whenever his father was reposted. He joined the airlines himself, following in his father’s footsteps, ending with several years at Iberia, designing publicity material, and writing copy and fell in love with Spain. He left the airlines in the late eighties to set up a greeting card and fine art print publishing house with his wife Diana, selling designs based on his own work. In 1999, they moved permanently to Valencia with their two young daughters. Tim and Diana live in the center of Valencia, with their daughters as neighbors just a few streets away. They have a comprehensive website, www.thisisvalencia.com, about the city, both for visitors and residents. Tim writes about the city and the area for various publications around the world and has promised his wife he will start painting again very soon.
