Tim Bowler

  • 4 stars across 32 books
Tim Bowler is one of the UK's most compelling and original writers for teenagers. He was born in Leigh-on-Sea and after studying Swedish at University he worked in forestry, the timber trade, teaching and translating before becoming a full-time writer. He lives with his wife in a small village in Devon and his workroom is an old stone outhouse known to friends as 'Tim's Bolthole'.

Tim has written nineteen books and won fifteen awards, including the prestigious Carnegie Medal for River Boy. His most recent novel is the gripping Night Runner and his provocative BLADE series has been hailed as a groundbreaking work of fiction. He has been described by the Sunday Telegraph as 'the master of the psychological thriller' and by the Independent as 'one of the truly individual voices in British teenage fiction'.
