Timothy (Vincent ) Smith was born in Chicago, the oldest of 10 children. He spent the better part of his youth in Louisville, Kentucky, and then decided to see the rest of the world. His first stop was China, where he spent 10 years teaching for various universities. His next stop was Singapore. His heart, though, remained in Kentucky. Tim's general interests include creative writing, rhetoric, and philosophy. He’s back in the States now, and in addition to writing, continues to teach.
