Tim Collins is an advertising copywriter who lives in London. One day, while visiting a trendy pub, he admitted to himself that he'd rather be at home watching the special features of a Doctor Who DVD. It was at this point that he decided to come out as a geek. He believes that everyone would be happier if they accepted their geeky sides. Collins is the author of over ten works, including Beyond the Lost Symbol, 100 Ways to Create a Great Ad, and Diary of a Wimpy Vampire.
