Once Upon a Tim

book | Fiction | Mar 2022
US & Canada → Simon & Schuster (Ed. Justin Chanda & Krista Vitola)

Once upon a time there was a peasant named Tim.

Yes, you heard that right. This is the story of a peasant. This is not the story of Prince Ruprecht or Princess Grace or the Great High Wizard, Nerlim. But you’ll hear about all of them too.

No, this is the story of a boy who wanted more out of life than to grow up to be a woodsman like his father, and his father, and his father…you get the idea, even if that means taking a treacherous journey filled with dangerous beasts, angry ogres and very devious humans.

Until now, the only path to success in the Kingdom of Merryland was to be born a prince.

But there’s never been a hero like Tim before.
