Barry Timms enjoys the way that stories bring people together. He grew up in the rolling, rugged Cornish landscape but now lives by an old water tower in South London and is a city boy at heart. Barry can often be found with pencil in hand, writing or drawing, or both. Most exciting of all is putting words and images together, and the surprising results that can happen. Barry likes road movies, ghost trains, and exploring forgotten side streets. His books include This is NOT A Unicorn!, The Twelve Green Days of Christmas, Where Happiness Lives, and Noah and the Starbird.
