More About the Author
Notwithstanding that a career in the law and then in property restoration meant that Tinsley always had his feet firmly on the ground, it never stopped him from having his head in the clouds and his nose stuck into a book. He had a passion for all the arts but his love of literature and the alchemy that could be wrought with the magic of words always took precedence, so it was inevitable that he should become a writer.
Tinsley has no one genre and his different books bear virtually no resemblance to each other in style or content. It is hard to appreciate that the person who wrote The Guru Game, a humorous book which at times borders on the farcical, also wrote the dark occult thriller which is Metamorphosis. What these two books have in common with each other and with everything else he has written is that they have a strong story line and that it can be seen that the author cares about who his characters are, what happens to them, and most importantly, what is going on inside their heads as well as in their lives. He takes the view that amongst the sea of bland people who daily cross our paths, just occasionally we might see or meet someone who seriously intrigues us and who we instinctively want to know more about; maybe even, despite all common sense, we will find ourselves falling in love with them. He believes that whether our choice of reading is literary fiction, humour, thrillers or romances, these are the people we want to spend time with, and wanting to find out what fate has in store for them is what keeps us reading till the last page.
A few years ago Tinsley gave up his frenetic life in London and moved to rural Somerset. Now living in a book lined house with his wife and daughter he is able to live at a more sensible pace and devote more of his time to writing.
