Tim Reed whittles the week away by frowning over reports as a technical editor, but once the moon rises, he transforms into a werebeast of writer proportions. He has gobbled classic and contemporary novels for many years and uses them as inspiration for his own writing, mainly in the horror, fantasy and sci-fi realms. He has been published several times in the novella and short story field, in the USA and UK, with works such as ‘Spider From the Well’ and ‘Running Free’ available as ebooks on Amazon.
His debut fantasy novel ‘Summons of the Majestic’ has been picked up by Mirror Matter Press, for publication in late 2016. Horror/fantasy novel ‘What Glimmers in the Wood’ will be published by Sinister Grin Press in 2017.
One day, he dreams of forming his own Inklings club, creating his own Mythos or generally accepting $1 for film rights to any of his books. So no pressure.
In the meantime, he lives in relative tranquility with his wife in sunny London, musing on how to write messed-up weird fiction without having to resort to opium. He cites Tolkien, Blackwood, Herbert, Lovecraft and King as influences.
Outside of writing, Tim enjoys many hobbies – too many, for the writer within; these include most sports, being a snooty film buff, being an equally snooty theatre/museum goer, and building shrines to Bruce Campbell (one of these is untrue). He enjoys great food, good family and loves the little, peaceful things in life.
