About the Author

Thomas Timmins was born in rural Iowa. He somehow won the genes-and-family lottery when he inherited natural happiness coupled with a skeptical eye. Despite the gifts of love and empathic values he received, he's had his magic carpet pulled out from under him many times. He stays aloft because of his four magnificent children and their miraculous lives and children. Thomas has published and performed his poetry and short fiction in person and in print across the U.S. and on the internet. With poet friends, he founded Fractals, a literary tabloid and ran Poets and Players, a community performance series.

Having had more jobs than most itinerant workers, he turned the experiences into fodder for his literary work and confidence to found, create and manage his own projects for a living and for community service. Thomas developed and taught writing and coaching programs for inmates, published commercial writing, founded, managed, and advised several small businesses ranging from soyfoods to ice cream to telephone fundraising to biological pest control to a video game start-up to energy efficiency retrofits and a media company. (Some might think all of these projects reveal an innate instability, though Thomas believes it's more about the Crooked Path he and everyone meander.) He has published a three-book series of The Hour Between One and Two, dark, comedic mysteries set in the international world of tofu and exotic organic imports. More recently he released Aphrodisiac for an Angel, an environmental thriller and mystical romance.

Zoëtown Media is making available several other of his compositions ranging from a graphic novel, a novella and short stories, poetry, and 5 Gifts of Bright Presence©, true accounts of encounters with an acausal positive force in the natural world.
