Tim Hewitt lived in Maine when he undertook this journey of a lifetime, and thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail under the trail name Paddler in 1999.
A software engineer and engineering manager in the semiconductor industry by trade, Tim's love of the outdoors kept him in the woods, fields and streams all of his life.
He was born in Washington state in 1957, has also lived in Idaho, Arizona, Maine and North Carolina in the US, as well as China, South Korea and Malaysia.
After spending nearly six years living in Malaysia, he currently lives in North Carolina, and enjoys getting out into the mountains as much as possible when he is not writing.

Tim also has published several Epic Fantasy novels under the pen name Timothy Bond. You can read more about them under The Triadine Saga, or at Timothy Bond's Amazon Author Page.
