About The Author
Tim Lea was born in England and for the last 9 years has been living in Sydney, Australia. Over his 20-year career in the financial industry he has focused primarily on commercial finance, but has always been a passionate writer of screenplays, short films and stories. His fascination with Shakespeare began eight years ago when he first met a documentary film-maker, who questioned Shakespeare’s authorship.
After analysing Shakespeare’s educational, psychological and business profiles Tim began researching the circumstantial evidence surrounding the great playwright. Tim was hooked. He felt Shakespeare’s profile and the surrounding circumstantial evidence meant there was no way that Shakespeare was the creative and literary genius that the Establishment had been promoting for four hundred years. He was motivated to write a book that explored the possibility that if actual proof was found that Shakespeare was a fraud and that his plays were written by someone else, how would different groups react?
On the one side, the Establishment would be keen to maintain the status quo and protect its own vested interests – after all Shakespeare is a multi-billion dollar Industry. On the other, there are those who are passionate about proving Shakespeare did not write his own works and have devoted their whole lives to solving a mystery that has eluded researchers and scholars alike for four hundred years. Imagine a world where Shakespeare was no longer the cultural baseline for Western Culture, no longer the most influential man of the millennium. There’s a lot at stake.
Tim spent 8 years researching and writing The Pelican Code and is ready to push the boundaries of “The Establishment.”
Tim has written and published numerous articles on many different subjects including the misinterpretation of language and international slang. He is a published author in corporate finance. His last book was entitled A Guide to Factoring and Invoice Discounting – The New Bankers.
Tim is an economics graduate, with a Masters in Economics and an MBA from English Universities. The Pelican Code is his first novel.
