Tim Byrd lives with his adventurous son and a treacherous cat near Atlanta, Georgia. He is often barefoot, prone to irony, and interested in everything. He knows how to tie a tie, but doesn't care to. He has been a dishwasher, shoe salesman, waiter, soldier, game designer, independent filmmaker, and outdoor guide. He wants to be a kid when he grows up.
In May 2009, Tim published his first novel, Doc Wilde and the Frogs of Doom, with G.P. Putnam's Sons. Full of mystery, mutant frogs and mad scientists, this fun adventure story enthusiastically reveals Tim's inner kid.
