Tim Bowler - Author


Tim Bowler is the author of several prize-winning books for children, teenagers and young adults. He has won fourteen awards, including the Carnegie Medal, the pre-eminent UK award for Children's Literature. His novels have been described as psychological, mystical and philosophical adventure thrillers. He was born in Leigh-on-Sea, and studied Swedish and Scandinavian studies at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, undertaking a variety of jobs before becoming a full-time writer in 1994.

His first published novel was Midget (1994), a psychological thriller set in Leigh-on-Sea. This has been followed by several other novels:Dragon's Rock (1995), a thriller set in Devon; River Boy (1997), a story about love and bereavement and winner of the Carnegie Medal; Shadows(1999), a gritty love story; Storm Catchers (2001), a kidnap thriller; Starseeker (2002), a mystical exploration of love, loss and music, also made into a play; Apocalypse (2004), an allegory about the future of mankind, and Frozen Fire (2006), a philosophical thriller about the nature of reality.

His most recent works are Books 1 and 2 of his urban thriller series Blade (published in March 08), and his new novel Bloodchild, a story about memory, secrets and betrayal (published September 2008).

Tim 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'.
