Tim Ryan lives in Tonbridge, England. He is married with four children.

It took him a while to settle on a career. After a brief spell in the army, he worked as a security guard, postman, hop-picker, shop assistant, carpet-cleaning salesman, financial adviser, market research executive, criminal barrister and solicitor. Now he thinks he always wanted to be a writer.

His debut novel for children, Jack’s Ladder, is available on Amazon in both print and ebook formats. He has recently published his first grown up novel, Discoverie, a tale of Elizabethan adventure and intrigue.

He is currently researching his next book, which he expects to be a crime thriller.
