Biography

Artist
Tim's art is an ecletic collection of work that derives inspriation of impresionism from Monet, abstract from Mondrian, landscape from Bob Ross, and a host of others. The works are more for personal joy as he continually builds his skill to something that meets his low expectations.
Author   
Tim Lewis manages rocket programs by day, and collects hobbies by night. Writing has been the longest running hobby, going back to middle school and first place in a Halloween story contest. He took creative writing at Purdue, but his public works have all been scholastic and technical. In the years following, there has been an accumulation of short stories and scenes brewing that few have seen beyond his laptop. Tim leans toward Sci Fi, Urban Fantasy and Noir, where each contain an element of humor from a life spent as a smart ass. He published his first fiction work, Switch, in 2019 and continues to write and submit as he aspires to his favorite quote by Benjamin Franklin, “If you wou’d not be forgotten / As soon as you are dead and rotten, / Either write things worth reading, / or do things worth the writing.” For more on Tim and his work, go to LewisVenture.com.

In his spare time he volunteered for the Collings Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to keeping our aviation history flying.

Walton Beach in 2005 developing the sustainment program’s communication infrastructure for Air Force’s Special Operations Command CV-22 Osprey program. The roles presented challenges working with diverse organizations and individuals to reach a shared understanding and promote the business. In 2010, he obtained his doctorate of management in organizational leadership, which he now applies advising, designing and implementing information system communication solutions. He currently integrates these solution in Huntsville for strategic missile systems, commercial airplane engineering teams, and teams across the enterprise.

Author Inteview Questions

: Have any favorite quotes?
: I have several, but the one that resonates the most is something I stumbled upon decades ago by Benjamin Franklin that inspires me to create and has been motivation:  If you wou’d not be forgotten / As soon as you are dead and rotten, / Either write things worth reading, / or do things worth the writing.

: Where do you get your story ideas?
: The basic ideas show up organically with a thought or experience. I usually write one to three paragraphs like a blurb that place hold the amalgamation until I can give it some legs. Of course I'm heavily influenced by family, movies, other authors, and the voices in my head.

: Are you a plotter or a pantser?
: Yes. Generally my story ideas evolve into a clear plotted opening with a hook, and then I have an ending where I want the story to culimate. I'll hit hit a few key turning points, pack in a bunch of tropes, but after that I just start pantsing sequentially and see where the story and the characters take me. So I guess I'm a plantser?

: Several of your stories take place in Huntsville, why the affinity for a small Alabama town?
: Huntsville is actually the largest city in Alabama now, but much of the residents are not native Alabamians. Aside from being my current home, I like basing my stories on a place I know. As I'm writing I imagine myself in these places to help drive the feel, emotion, and scenery. I'm more of a visual person so I need to be grounded in an area I can relate to, which is why I lean toward fantasy and less toward epic fantasy. I'll often go out and walk in the footsteps of the actual places to really entrench my thoughts, and when I can't physically be there, I'll fly Google Earth to try and get the feel. Some of my other stories take place in Chicago, where I grew up, Califonira where I have visited many times, and outer space, because my wife often catches me disappeared in my own little world.
