About Tim Federle

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 he made his feature film debut as co-screenwriter of Fox Animation’s Oscar-nominated Best Animated Feature 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 .
