About Me


"It is my goal to inspire children and adults of all ages to follow their dreams and achieve success in their lives!"





Timothy A. Northburg was born in West Germany. As a military child, he moved around to many different and exciting places and met many new people along the way. From as early as he can remember he was fascinated with books and stories. His love affair with books sparked his imagination. As a young boy he was always making up many adventures with his friends. Today he lives in Colorado with his wife and three children. He thrives on sharing his appreciation of literature and his wild imagination with his daughters. When he is not working, he spends time with his children nurturing their creativity. The thing he looks forward to most is reading them bedtime stories and sharing the magic of the books he enjoyed as a kid. He is an avid reader and loves going on new adventures.
