Author Bio: Raised crisscrossing America pulling a small green trailer behind the family car, Timothy Jay Smith developed a ceaseless wanderlust that has taken him around the world many times. En route, hes found the characters that people his work. Polish cops and Greek fisherman, mercenaries and arms dealers, child prostitutes and wannabe terrorists, Indian Chiefs and Indian tailors: hes hung with them all in an unparalleled international career thats seen him smuggle banned plays from behind the Iron Curtain, maneuver through war zones and Occupied Territories, represent the U.S. at the highest levels of foreign governments, and stowaway aboard a devils barge for a three-days crossing from Cape Verde that landed him in an African jail. If life were a sport, Tims life would qualify as an extreme one, yet hes managed most of it by working with people in personal, even intimate, settings. His professional life took him from the White House corridors to Americas harshest neighborhoods, from palace dinners to slum pickings, and these experiences explain the unique breadth and sensibility of his work. Tim continues to collect stories while he triangulates his time between Paris, Miamis South Beach and Greece  and visiting one or two more exotic locales each year. He brings the same energy to his writing that he brought to a distinguished career, and as a result, hes won top honors for his screenplays, stageplays and novels in numerous prestigious competitions; among them, contests sponsored by the American Screenwriters Association, WriteMovies, Houston WorldFest, Rhode Island International Film Festival, and the Hollywood Screenwriting Institute. His first novel won the 2008 Paris Prize for Fiction and his first stageplay, which went on to a successful NYC production, won the very prestigious Stanley Drama Award.
