Tim Kleyn

As a boy, Tim Kleyn spent a lot of time lost in thought, dreaming up silly stories, and perpetually sketching. Tim pursued this path in life until it led him into the magical world of picture books. He is thrilled to be the author and illustrator of SET SAIL FOR PANCAKES, which is set to debut with Viking children’s Books (Penguin Random House) in 2022.


Tim enjoys a charming life with his wife, daughter, and cat in their Michigan home. In his free time, he enjoys a good laugh, a good meal, and a good sit. What more could he want?


Tim is represented by Tracy Marchini of BookEnds Literary Agency. Visit his website at kleynillustration.com to follow his work.
