Timothy Williams is a bilingual British author. Born in Walthamstow (Essex, now London) Williams attended Woodford Green Preparatory School, Chigwell School and St Andrews University. He has previously lived in France, Italy, and in Romania, where he worked for the British Council.
Tim Williams has written five novels in English featuring Commissario Piero Trotti, a character critics have referred to as a personification of modern Italy. Williams’ books include Black August, which won a Crime Writers’ Association award. His novels have been translated into French, Italian, Danish, Russian, Bulgarian, Polish, and Japanese.
Williams’ first French novel, Un autre soleil, set in the Caribbean, was published in Paris by Rivages in March 2011 and in English as Another Sun in New York by Soho Press in April 2013.
Un Autre Soleil (Another Sun) features Anne Marie Laveaud as French-Algerian judge who has relocated to this beautiful Caribbean island confident that she could make it her new home. But her day-to-day life is rife with frustration. The second in the series in English is just out from Soho: The Honest Folk of Guadeloupe.
Mr. Williams, who holds dual British/French citizenship, currently lives on the island of Guadeloupe.
The Observer chose Timothy Williams as one of the ten best European crime novelists.
