This is where you can find out everything you want to know about Tim and his work.
Tim’s latest book is the story of a little train on the very first day he’s allowed out on his own. He’s so excited to be exploring his world that he travels a long, long way – only to find that he’s gone too far and has got himself lost! But when things seem darkest, he remembers something his parents told him: “When it’s time to come home, no matter how far away you are, just follow the track all the way back – where we’ll be waiting for you.”
Tim's next collaboration with the multi-talented Stuart Matthew Price (with whom he wrote BEFORE AFTER) is IMAGINARY. Commissioned by the National Youth Music Theatre, IMAGINARY is a story about growing up - what you have to give up to become an adult, and what you must never let go of. Hilarious and heartbreaking, IMAGINARY premieres at The Other Palace Theatre in August 2017.
