ABOUT TIM BURKE

  • I teach ESL in the classroom and have my own private tutoring company. I’m interested in MG and YA.  My MG manuscripts are humorous adventure tales involving talking dogs or robots or aliens or a dung beetle professor or twin eleven year-olds who are circus spies. My YA novels are more serious. One deals with a young high school girl who has issues with her parents (dad’s fallen into the bottle) and a football player who doesn’t understand the meaning of NO. My latest project is a supernatural YA thriller.

    Other interests: ice hockey (non-checking at my stage!), semi-pro guitarist on weekends working in various bands.

    No kids, but a fabulous wife and two extraordinary mutts from the pound who make us laugh every day.
