Tim Marquitz is an author I thank Twitter for.
You see, it was a Twitter discussion with two fellow bloggers (Bastard Books and Only The Best SciFi) that got me reading his books. That first book turned out to be my slippery slope. I fell in love with his writing and his fantastic twist on a very exhausted urban fantasy genre. Marquitz somehow took urban fantasy, a genre that I rarely ever have anything good to say about, and made me look at it differently and respect it for what it could be and what he made of it.
He’s a very nice guy with a great online presence and quite a list of published books under his belt. I’m honored to welcome him to Triumph Over Tragedy, and I was beyond thrilled when he approached me about donating a story to the anthology. Not only did he donate a story, but he wrote a brand new one for all of you lovely readers.
I’ve read it (several times now). It’s quite good, so be excited. Marquitz is a hell of an author, and Triumph Over Tragedy will benefit with his involvement.

About the Author
Raised on a diet of Heavy Metal and bad intentions, Tim Marquitz has always been interested in writing, but it wasn’t until about 1995 the urge became a compulsion. However, it would be many years later before the ability matched the interest. Fortunately, the two have reconciled…mostly.
Writing a mix of the dark perverse, the horrific, and the tragic, tinged with sarcasm and biting humor, he looks to leave a gaping wound in the minds of his readers like his inspirations: Clive Barker, Jim Butcher, and Stephen King.
A former grave digger, bouncer, and dedicated metalhead, Tim is a huge fan of Mixed Martial Arts, and fighting in general.
He lives in Texas with his beautiful wife and daughter.
