Tim Collins



I am originally from Manchester, but I now live near London. At first I wrote non-fiction books for adults, but five years ago I began to publish children's fiction.

I've now published over seventy books that have been translated into over forty languages.

These include series fiction like Wimpy Vampire, Cosmic Colin, Dorkius Maximus and Monstrous Maud.

I have also written many stories for reluctant readers, such as Troll, Joke Shop, The Locals, Mr Perfect and Dawn of the Daves.

I have been lucky enough to win several awards such as Manchester Fiction City, The Lincolnshire Young People's Book Award and The Kalbacher Klapperschlange.

  1. Hi Tim, a child in my class has written a letter to you. I would love to be able to post it to you but I am finding a contact address difficult to find. Please could you let me know the best address to send it to.
    Many thanks, Mr Gary

  4. Dear Tim, my daughter has a question: why do you sometimes write under the name of Mr. Saddlewick? She has read some of your The Monter Mia and needs this information to make a presentation at school :) I am curious too :) Thank you very much for your answer! Best Regards
