Background Information

Timmy and the Golden Lion Tamarin will be published by True North Publishing, spring 2015.

Eight-year-old Timmy Hawkins dreads going to school each day. Not because of the hard work, but because of a mean bully named Zeke who makes Timmy’s life a nightmare. Even worse, nobody seems to understand or care what Timmy is going through. He is about to give up hope when a very specialfriend appears outside his window one night in the form of a rare Golden Lion Tamarin. Timmy soon realizes that the Tamarin, who he names Rin, is invisible to everyone but him. When the critter sneaks into Timmy’s backpack one day and goes to school with him, it results in some hilarious antics that puts Zeke in his place. Soon, Timmy is feeling confident, all because of his “guardian angel animal,” and with Rin’s help, he finally finds the courage within to make a stand against Zeke and his bully pals once and for all.

The Guardian Angel Animal Series introduces rare and endangered animal “angels” into the lives of children who are experiencing emotional and physical challenges.


About Me

Daughter of a rocket scientist and an artist, LK Griffie combines the traits of both into a quirky yet pragmatic writer and in everything sees the story lurking beneath the surface. Born in Seattle, WA and raised in southern California, LK is definitely a west coast girl, but loves to travel.

She fostered her love of writing after reading Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women and discovering she had a great deal in common with the character Jo. The making up of stories, dramatic feelings, and a quick temper were enough for her to know she and Jo would have been kindred spirits. By her side in every writing endeavor are her two assistants, Phoenix and Elsa.

LK volunteers with high school students through the International Trade Education Programs (ITEP). ITEP unites business people and educators to prepare students for a meaningful place in the world of tomorrow. Working in partnership with industry and educators, ITEP helps young people “think globally and earn locally.”
