Tim Federle, Author of BETTER NATE THAN EVER and TEQUILA MOCKINGBIRD
Tim Federle is “a prolific scribe whose breezy wit isn’t bound to a single genre” (Huffington Post).
Tim’s award-winning novels include the New York Times Notable Books The Great American Whatever and Better Nate Than Ever — which Lin-Manuel Miranda called “a wonderful evocation of what it’s like to be a theater kid” (New York Times).
Tim’s cocktail recipe books, including the worldwide bestseller Tequila Mockingbird, have sold over half a million copies.
Recently, Tim co-wrote the Tony-nominated Broadway musical Tuck Everlasting, and his latest project is a self-help guide called Life is Like a Musical. (Think: Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff, with jazz hands.) This Christmas, he makes his feature film debut as co-screenwriter of Fox Animation’s Ferdinand, starring John Cena and Kate McKinnon.
A native of San Francisco who grew up in Pittsburgh, Tim now divides his time between New York and the internet ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
