Tim Shoemaker

Tim Shoemaker is the author of over twenty books and is a popular speaker at conferences and schools around the country.  Over twenty-five years working with youth has helped him relate to his reading and listening audience in unique ways. His contemporary suspense, Code of Silence, was named in the “Top Ten Crime Novels for Youth” by Booklist. Currently he is finishing a five-book YA series for Focus on the Family and actively speaking and coaching writers. 

Tim loves writing mystery, adventure, and suspense that is clean, powerful, and definitely not “hokey” Christian fiction. His energetic style of teaching helps make even difficult topics clear. He is all about encouraging and equipping writers to do what they do—better.  

Tim has been happily married for over forty years, and lives in the Chicagoland area near his three sons, daughter-in-laws, and ten grandkids!  www.Timshoemaker.com
