Author of the Poke Rafferty Thrillers,
Noir aka Hardboiled Private Investigator Series Set in Thailand
TV Exec Rocks and Writes
Timothy Hallinan is the author of three widely praised crime fiction series: the Poke Rafferty Thrillers, set in Thailand,  the Simeon Grist mystery books, set in Los Angeles, and the new Junior Bender comic mysteries, featuring a burglar who works as an investigator for other crooks.

Hallinan, who has lived, on and off, in Southeast Asia for more than 25 years, began writing books while enjoying a successful career in the television industry.  He wrote songs and sang in a rock band while in college, and many of his songs were recorded by by well-known artists, including the platinum-selling group Bread.  

For years he has taught a course on “Finishing the Novel” with remarkable results--more than half his students complete their first novel and go on to a second, and several have been, or are about to be, published.  Tim currently maintains a house in Santa Monica, California, and apartments in Bangkok, Thailand; and Phnom Penh, Cambodia.  He is married to Munyin Choy-Hallinan.
