Novel gift idea: Local author publishes fifth book, ‘The Man from Banner Lake’

Local author Tim Black’s fifth book, titled “The Man from Banner Lake.”

Local author Tim Black, a retired history teacher, has been publishing fiction and non-fiction since 1976 in publications around the world, from The London Times to The Miami Herald as well as Military History Quarterly, Reader’s Digest, Palm Beach Life and scores of other publications.

He has published five books.

Four books were published by California publisher Untreed Reads: Daydreams and Diaries, a well-received cancer memoir which was written with his late daughter Taylor Black; Tesla’s Time Travelers, a YA (Young Adult) book dealing with the American Revolution; and Eye, a social-science fiction time travel novel in which a hurricane sends an entire neighborhood back in time.

A sequel to Eye entitled Tiva was published in 2014.

He recently added The Man from Banner Lake, a historical novel set in Florida during World War II and the years thereafter in which a cab driver uncovers a Nazi assassination plot. The Man from Banner Lake also covers the controversial Groveland trial as well as the life of Civil Rights martyr Harry Tyson Moore.
