MC Fields has had many different careers ranging from washing dishes, to serving as an aircraft technician in the military, to instructor at a local college.
He developed an interest in martial arts early in life, learning from three distinct styles over a twenty year span. At 14, he learned some basic boxing techniques from his older brother who attended the same gym as Canadian featherweight Ian Clyde. Later at 19, he entered the ring and won his only recorded amateur boxing match. He would round out this training with two years in Shotokan Karate and an additional two years studying Aikido. It is fusion of these techniques that adds to his unique brand of writing.
He continues to train now, physically, mentally and most recently spiritually through daily meditation practices and music. His physical training regimen consists of 30 minutes aerobic strengthening exercises mixed with yoga, core and boxing workouts. For spiritual growth, he attends weekly guided meditation sessions as well as maintaining his own daily meditations through the use of a phone app. He also enjoys playing guitar and writing music as well as performing at open mic sessions.

Tim Bartholomew (www.timbartholomew.co.uk) is both a writer and actor, appearing most famously in TV commercials as Santa Claus for Marks & Spencer (2016) and the benign old Grandpa for Asda in their 2017 Christmas campaign.
Writing under the name Timothy Edward, his first comedy novel with “rude” bits, Lessons in Humiliation, received the following accolade from his old Dad: “Well, you’ve either had an unusual sex life or a very vivid imagination.” In point of fact, the reviewer was right on both counts.
Tim has also recorded the book for Amazon/Audible. At 10 hours 38 minutes, it makes ideal listening for long car journeys or flights. He is looking forward to recording Body Language too.
As they say in theatre programme credits, Tim has appeared on stage and screen for nearly twenty-five years, being cast normally as a benign old buffer, Captain Hook, a drag queen or a mad professor. According to one casting director, “it’s all about your rolling eyeballs, darling.” These days, however, Tim is aware that it’s all about his wrinkles: that lived-in face that earns him money for having fun in exotic locations.
In a varied career, Tim has also been an academic publisher, illustrator, music teacher, a payroll clerk and, in recent decades, a voice coach and Head of Drama at a mad school in Southern England. He draws material for his books from both his professional life, his own improbable experiences and, of course, family holidays.
Under his real name of Tim Baker, the author lives with his wife in Kent, the Garden of England. He is father to three boys and wicked stepfather to another boy and two girls, none of whom is inclined to read his erotic novels. He is an avid amateur photographer of birds—especially those of Trinidad and Tobago where his wife was born and upon whose glorious, secluded beaches Body Language opens and closes.
