This is where you can find out everything you want to know about Tim and his work.
It’s SNOT every day you find a book that gets RIGHT UP YOUR NOSE but Tim’s latest - WHO’S AFRAID OF THE BIG BAD BOGEY - will be the PICK of your autumn reading. Nothing to be SNEEZED AT, it tells the disgusting - and hilarious - story of a giant’s evil bogey running amok in some of your favourite fairy stories. Find out why Goldilocks REALLY didn’t eat the porridge! What happened when the princess kissed a bogey instead of a frog! And who ACTUALLY married the handsome prince!
Tim’s next musical will be 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. The National Youth Music Theatre will present a workshop production of the show this summer.
