Timothy Bateson is an author, amateur falconer, book reviewer, and blogger, with a passion for books. This passion only grew when he started his first job, working at the local libraries.
Originally born in England during the mid-70s, Bateson trained to become a computer engineer but discovered that he hated the work. So, when he moved to Alaska in 2005, to marry Sandi, he joined the retail service and hasn’t looked back.
As an author, Bateson writes primarily in Urban Fantasy but ventured into Science Fiction at the request of an anthology publisher that had featured one of his previous short stories.
As a blogger, Bateson spent over four years running “Ramblings of an Author”, before moving to his blogging efforts to his own website. He loves to feature books and authors from the Science Fiction, Urban Fantasy, and Fantasy genres, often highlighting works in the new release, and pre-release categories.
Ever since he took a day off school to attend a falconry demonstration, and had the opportunity to handle a Harris Hawk and a Barn Owl, Bateson has been fascinated with birds of prey. Over a lifetime of taking whatever chance he can get to handle and fly these magnificent creatures, he’s handled more birds than he cares to count. But the highlight of those experiences came when handling eagles for the first time at the Chesire Falconry Center in England.
OWSCyCon 2019 – Executive Director
Bateson has been part of the CyCon scene since the very beginning. When he heard that Brain to Books would be unable to host the event for 2019, he sought permission to continue the event. Teaming up with Our Write Side, Bateson took on the role of Executive Director to bring you the 2019 OWSCyCon.

Evaline May Be Humanity’s Last Hope
Evaline is the shipboard computer on the Miranda Two, a colony ship destined for the planet Karman-III-Delta. She is possibly Earth’s last hope of establishing a working off-world colony. However, her predecessor stopped reporting home, so now she and the colonists must establish what happened to the previous colony.
The Miranda Two has been traveling for twenty years, and now it’s time for Evaline to wake the crew and colonists in preparation or arrival at their destination. Can Evaline and the crew figure out what happened to the Miranda One expedition, and what price will they have to pay for the answers?
Genres: Short Story, Science Fiction, Artificial Intelligence, Colonization
What People Are Saying About “Evaline Transcendent”:
