Tim Dorsey

Biography

Tim Dorsey grew up in Riviera Beach on Florida’s southeast coast, and for several years has worked as a journalist on the night desk of the Tampa Tribune, where his duties include sorting through endless reports of brutal and strange crimes. Humour is a natural defence reaction to editing this parade of dysfunction, violence and stupidity, and it has led to a surreal, Florida-noir way of looking at things that became first Florida Roadkill and now Hammerhead Ranch Motel.

‘What a tour guide Tim Dorsey is.
This guy is an insane comic angel with uranium for brains and fifty heartbeats a second. Wow, what a ride.’ JAMES HALL
