Keep reading for Part 2 of the interview with Tim:

What are your goals as an author? Where do you see yourself in five years?

My goal is to write one the most exhilarating thrilling horror books that wind up becoming a movie. I see myself in five years as a best selling author.

What is the biggest obstacle you face as an author and what do you do to overcome it?

So far I have not had any obstacles. Luck that way so far.

Does your family support you in your writing, or are you on your own?

Yes my wife and children support what I do.

What is the best compliment you’ve ever received as an author?

I’d have to say a fellow who read my book and said, “Excellent writing.”

Have you ever had a particularly harsh critique? How did you handle it?

Not so far, but waiting. You always get the bad with the good, but that should make you want to be a better a writer.

What is the best writing advice you’ve ever received?

Don’t sell yourself short. A writer should never say someones writing is better than theirs. Think of your writing as good as others.

What do you enjoy doing aside from writing?

Writing country songs and playing guitar. I wrote the country song, Hell on Wheels, and Kyle Dunn co-wrote and preformed it. Check it out here.
