tim mikkelsen is a transplanted minnesotan living in charlotte, north carolina. after years in the airline industry, tim (along with his ditch-cats, Rudy and Mandu) now writes and enjoys an occasional vodka tonic while toiling in the kitchen.
reared on a minnesota farm, tim is the youngest of three boys. his parents still own the farm where tim grew up on dirt bikes and too much sugar. not surprisingly, tim was his high school class clown.
