Two people from different parts of the world meet through being English teachers in China. A friendship was born and while both are avid readers, it has taken a long time to arrive at the decision to be a writer with an aim to publish our first dark fantasy book. Unlike most writers and authors, neither Tim Seabrook nor Cyrus Cooper were active writers in their youth.

Tim Seabrook is from the UK and has a vast expanse of experiences – from racing greyhounds to a short stint on a fruit farm as well as fencing and stage management with a local theatre. Tim has an extensive background in martial arts and enjoys perfecting his craft of baking delicious desserts. A change of scene took him to China to teach English where he met his wife. He lives in Baotou located in China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region where he spends his days dreaming of far off worlds and characters whilst surrounded by the lingering aroma of ginger.

Cyrus Cooper hails from the US. His early years are shrouded in mystery. Coming to China to teach English was something different and a challenge. Since being here, Cyrus has been involved with numerous filming projects with friends and for himself. He has written several scripts and has made several short films, along with a number of commercials. Currently Cyrus wanders the woodlands of the United States and communes with cryptids. If you sit quietly in the woods and your nature is correct, you may just see him.

Tim met Cyrus in 2010 and a friendship was born. Almost a decade later, they started collaborating on their first book.
