Colin Garrow

Historical author Tim Walker likes his fiction to be set in Roman Britain, so where did his interest in times long past come from?

Coming from a career that includes journalism, mineral exploration and rugby, how did you end up writing historical novels?

I developed a love for history and literature at school, and my first job after school was trainee reporter for a local newspaper, The Woolton Mercury, in South Liverpool. I jumped at the chance to research and serialise the history of a Grade One listed building in the area, Woolton Hall, and spend many hours in Liverpool libraries doing the research in the days before the internet.

I Saw A Flight of Dragons Once

Working Title Blogspot

I saw a flight of dragons once
Across the sunset sky
And as they rode the thermals

Thanks for inviting me to your blog! I’m Tim Walker, an independent author based in Windsor, UK. My career background is in marketing, journalism and publications management.
My creative writing journey began in 2014 as a consequence of a battle with cancer (I’m over it now!). I had to stop work and spent a lot of time at home. During this time, I decided to do an online creative writing course and started writing short stories, based around history and current affairs in the area where I live. I experimented with self-publishing and produced my first book of short stories, Thames Valley Tales, in 2015. In September 2017 I published a second collection of short stories – Postcards from London. These…
