Tim Lilly was born in Washington D.C. on January 16th, 1965. At the age of 3 his family moved from Virginia to Taiwan while his father served in Vietnam as the Director of Air Operations for Air America in Military Region 2 based in Nha Trang. In 1973 the Paris Peace accord was signed thus ending American involvement in the war and Vietnam was declared safe for U.S. Dependants, subsequently; he and his family relocated there shortly after the treaty was signed. On April 1st, 1975 Tim and his family left Vietnam just before Saigon fell to the North Vietnamese Army on April 30th. They had visited Hawaii several times on vacation and decided to make that their home. His father started a real estate business where Tim began to work at the age of 14. He eventually came to run the company in 2005 but it was decimated by the Great Recession of 2008 and closed its doors on June 30th, 2009. Tim Lilly has been a lifetime martial artist and speaks Mandarin due to his living in Taiwan at such a young age. He is now exploring a career in acting, martial arts stunt work, and is now an author. His first work of fiction; "Wode Susu-My Uncle-A Story Of The Chinese Mafia", is a ground breaking look into the inner workings of the most secretive criminal organization the world has ever known.

Bio: I am a retired Texas Peace Officer with over 21 years (1973-1994) as such. I also was a contractor/agent for the FBI and CIA for 10 years (1994-2004) after retiring from active law enforcement. Then I went to work for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (2005-present). My books are based on my life and career as a cop, and then as an contracting federal agent for the federal authorities as an International Bounty Hunter/Assassin, hence the reason I write about my life in fiction. I wish I could do a real bio on myself, but that's totally out of the question. I write a series actually, referred to as the "DANE" novels.
Book one's title,"Dane, a life and time thereof: First Bounty", takes the reader from my age of 12 years through to the end of my first international bounty case.
Book two's title,"Dane: Saigon J.U.M.P.", takes the reader all over southeast Asia going after a bad guy wanted back here in the U.S. It is soon to be released.
This series is a total of 7 books altogether to complete it. Now, I write my books in such a way that they are actually linked to one another. So, if you were to get book 5 to read, it will say things I talked about in previous stories that won't make sense without having the others, one through 4, to better understand what I am talking about in book 5, and so on. It's very hard to write in such a way, believe me, but I found it best if I really want to give the reader the full story of my life and career that has now spaned over 41 years. Actually if you add from age 12 as my books start you have a life put on paper that spans 53 years, and I am currently 61. I'll be 62 in February, 2015. http://www.hoofard.us http://www.amazon.com/authorscircle
