The Tree House
There are many forbidden things in 1960s Birmingham, Alabama. But nothing is more forbidden than loving outside your race—especially when the person you love is also a family member.
Benny McClain only loved one thing more than his family: football. But growing up in the south becomes more complicated when a neighbor becomes more than just family.
Penny Jones only found solace in two things: Benny McClain and his treehouse. A childhood defined by loss changes a person. But when loving someone is forbidden by skin color, how can two people reconcile? And how can the unthinkable mistakes of one fateful night ever be undone?
About Timothy Kyle
I am a 39-year-old author and longtime native of Phoenix, Arizona. I received my master’s degree in Exercise Science in 2009 from San Diego State University. For the next decade I worked in the education and non-profit sectors.
After leaving the teaching profession in 2019 I took up writing as a hobby while I stayed at home to be a full-time dad to my three daughters. However, the birth of becoming an author is from years of part-time work as an Uber driver. I would come home and tell my wife stories about complete strangers that I would meet. I remember being so blown away with peoples' willingness to share their story with a complete stranger. And thus, the birth of the New Forever Series: Change and Don't Change. Then I wrote my third book: The Tree House.
I never made a conscious decision to write in the adult contemporary romance genre. It just happened organically. My goal in writing is to make my stories as real and as authentic as they can be. The reader will go through a turbulent journey in my love stories. My hope is they fall in love with the characters as much as I do.
I am a proud feminist man who writes in a genre dominated by female writers. My stories have a depth and perspective that goes beyond the common romantic tropes and typical romance novels. There is a little bit of comedy, darkness and yes...a little bit of spice. My one promise to my readers is plenty of suspense and a "happily ever after" that will have the reader swimming in happy tears.
