Tim Ghianni has been a professional writer since 1974, when he began a thirty-four-year stint as an award-winning editor, reporter, photographer, and columnist for newspapers in Nashville and middle Tennessee. He is now a freelance journalist and has authored books about his newspaper career and the decline of the industry, an alien invasion of a tiny Kentucky town, and his mother’s death. He and his wife Suzanne live in the middle of Nashville, where they raised two children.
