Tim Wickenden - Author

About the Author

Tim was born in Zimbabwe in 1962. He spent his early years in Zimbabwe, the UK and then Hong Kong. At the age of eight he went off to boarding school in the UK, spending his holidays in Germany, where his father was stationed. He loved the country and its people and in planning to create a new detective series it seemed natural to choose 60s Berlin.

He has been writing for many years, including plays: Wilfrid's Sussex (1980), Word Over All (1987); and many short stories, including Girl Hunter (Max Becker), The Helmet and The Heist (Max Becker), Mrs Ruth Backmayer, Last Train, Mr Banerjee's Outing, Alice Band to Myrtle Beach, Last Song for Isa and released his first novel, Angel Avenger: A Max Becker Thriller on 31 July  2019.

Since 2005 he's lived in West Wales, is married and has a son. He loves walking, reading, writing, researching 20thc Military history, and prior to becoming a full-time writer worked variously as a teacher, college lecturer, IT analyst and Cabinet Maker.
