About Me
I'm a writer, storyteller, songwriter, and university lecturer at Santa Clara University in Silicon Valley. I write fiction, nonfiction, and poetry for adults, young adults, and children, and I'm also a songwriter and professional storyteller. Few things in the world are more powerful and more beautiful than Story--and much of my life is dedicated to that power and beauty. My children’s books have won recognition from the New York Times, NPR, the Smithsonian, Nickelodeon, and others; I have 11 children's books out and four in press. I've published over 120 poems, won a first prize in a poetry contest judged by John Updike, have two books of adult poetry out, won a major prize in science fiction, and have been nominated for two Pushcarts. My ebook Glad to Be Dad: A Call to Fatherhood is now out from Familius.com--I won the West Coast Songwriters Saratoga Chapter Song of the Year award--and won the 2012 Society of Children's Writers and Illustrators Magazine Merit Award for Fiction. My website is www.TimMyersStorySong.com, my YouTube channel is at https://www.youtube.com/user/TimJMyers, and I can whistle and hum at the same time.
By the way, I'm listed as "Tim J. Myers" on Amazon--thanks!
