This is where you can find out everything you want to know about Tim and his work.
Illustrated by the brilliant Sam Lloyd (author and illustrator of Mr Pusskins), Tim’s new book is the thrilling adventure of Peg, a girl who dreams of escape and adventure. When the pirates won’t let her join their crew because she is small, polite and reads books, she transforms herself into Captain Sparklebeard, and sets out to become the greatest pirate there ever was!
Tim’s next musical is GROWL. Telling “the true story of the big bad wolf”, it’s his latest collaboration with lyricist and composer Laurence Mark Wythe, with whom he previously wrote MIDNIGHT and DANNY HERO. Tickets are now available for the 2019 National Youth Music Theatre production which will be touring to: the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds, Curve Studio, Leicester and the Rose Theatre, Kingston.
