Jeremy Moray was born in Cobham, England in 1943, and arrived in Vancouver in 1975. He has written a series of at least four bestselling Timmy the Tug tales featuring the cheerful adventures of a West Coast tug, its old-fashioned captain and various coastal denizens, all illustrated by Dee Gale. In Timmy Ties Up (Harbour, 1991), a fire on board threatens the tug's final voyage before Timmy can tie up after 70 years' service. Moray and Gale are married and live Saltspring Island.
