About me
Tim Vicary is an author  and a university teacher at the university of York, England. His legal thrillers about a tough British barrister, Sarah Newby, have been compared to the works of John Grisham and Scott Turow. The second book in the series , A Fatal Verdict, was awarded a B.R.A.G Medallion for an outstanding independent novel, and the third book, Bold Counsel,  was awarded the Awesome Indies Seal of Excellence. His four historical novels have also won praise.
Tim has also written about twenty graded readers for foreign learners of English, published by Oxford University Press. In 2010 and 2011 two of these – Titanic and The Everest Story – were each the winners in their category for the Language Learner Literature Award for the Extensive Reading Foundation.
Tim lives in the English countryside, near York. When he’s not writing he likes horse-riding, cycling, and swimming.
