Tim Hayes has a master’s degree in Creative Writing from California State University, Chico. He currently works as an associate faculty in the Butte College English Department and when he isn’t creating madcap ways to help his students learn, he is working on his novel. Tim’s current literary leanings include fantasy, horror, and steampunk. He spends his days grading, writing, and exploring the worlds of DnD and others. Which means, most of the time, Tim is holding a pen and a sword.
