Custom medieval header art by Philipe Eikemans.
My name is Tim Eveland, or Author Timothy R.J. Eveland when I’m trying to be fancy. Born in 1991, I’m blessed to live in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
I’m currently going to University of Victoria for a major in Medieval Studies. My favorite hobby besides reading or writing is practicing Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA).
I was put into a group home at age 9 and moved out on my own at 18. Year 18 was also the year I met my dad for the first time and I haven’t seen him since. Can you guess where this is going? By the time I was 20 I was working full-time as an aluminum welder by day, performing hip-hop by night. I got arrested for trafficking weed before it was legalized and then had a tumor taken out of my leg twice. Besides my current studies at university, I’ve completed four years of college (mostly random sociology and history courses). After all that, I quit rapping and grew up a little. My best accomplishment has simply been finding passion in the medieval. I’ve written over a half dozen books and have many more in the making. No one thought I would become an author or much more than that, as I was quite the troublemaker growing up. To be honest I got into reading after I got into writing, which is backwards for most people.
