Freriks creates a vivid environment where reality meets science fiction. From the first chapter of the book, I was taken on a literary journey painted with mystery, exploration, humor, and imagination. Bravo to Tim for writing such a great book.  Dr. Roger Clapp

Mrr is one of those crazy books that made me laugh hysterically, fear for the characters, and wonder what is coming next. It was a real fast-paced read that kept me glued to the pages. Like his first book, Apocalypse Disrupted, the twists and turns were unexpected and engaging. Can’t wait to read his newest book, Roland. Great job! Amazon customer

I am a huge fan of science fiction and I loved Freriks' first book, Apocalyse Disrupted, so I wanted to try Mrr. I was not disappointed. I was drawn in right from the first page and it didn't let me go. It was certainly a unique and complex story. Great read. I loved the relationship between Mrr and Marge, but even the bad guys were unique and captivating. There were parts where I laughed really hard. And the ending was an incredible ride. Another great book by Tim Freriks. Can't wait for the next one. Lauren Rowell.

Bad Bugs

Inside the Mind of a Serial Killer

This book is told through the mind of Michael Stammons, a serial killer. Stammons tells the story in a somewhat off-handed style, which might be creepy to some. But it is his story, justifications for his actions. He wants you to believe.

This is a psychological thriller.

And a love story.

And it might be disturbing.

As the alarming scope of the conspiracy becomes clear, Powell decides to risk his life and freedom to expose the plot.

Sudden Reversal

If you are an American Socialist, don’t read this.

Your head might explode.

It outlines a political conspiracy so expansive, so corrupt, so thorough and plausible, that it could be true.

When I originally wrote this book, the background events igniting the storyline hadn’t happened yet.

But now, many have… and the elitist cabal writing the future history must be stopped.

You may not like my solution.

But you WILL not like the reality!

World Number 2 – The Traveler

Intrigue Inside the Omniverse

Existence consists of a physical world and a non-physical world of faith and emotion. Both exist, but how can anything exist if it has no physical source?

Logic dictates that both the physical and non-physical must have existed in the Original Matter, the origin of all things. Since humans possess a soul, feelings, and awareness, so must our Original Creator. Each Creator must have its own set of human emotions like anger, love, jealousy and the need to compete.

But competition requires more than one player. Could more than one universe co-exist inside an Omniverse?

SIL Particle Theory and Existence


Roland: of pirates and patriots

Inspired by real people and events in American history.

Winner of two major literary awards.

It’s 1814, and America is on the brink of destruction. The fate of the young country now lies in the hands of an unlikely collection of patriots and pirates.

Inspired by true events and real life characters, Roland: of pirates and patriots, tells a harrowing tale of loyalty, patriotism, piracy, strange friendships, and betrayal—a forgotten backstory that preserved our freedom.

Paid by traitors to deliver a shipment of gold to America’s enemies, a bold naval captain is forced to choose between patriotism and survival. When conspiracy and murder threaten the ship and its treasure, a valuable secret is bestowed on one person—a twelve-year-old boy.

This is a story about a boy’s adventure, his growth to manhood, conspiracy and dedication, greed and obsession, heroism and sacrifice, struggle and victory.

I read Freriks' first book, Apocalypse Disrupted, and loved it. Roland is a great third novel. The concept of finding a hidden story behind the people and events that ended the War of 1812 is awesome. The story grabbed me right from the start and kept me intrigued until the ending. And, wow, what an ending! Great read.
Amazon customer.

Roland: Of Pirates and Patriots is a story about patriotism and the greed for gold. It follows the life of Roland who is a child when he witnesses the murder of his father and takes upon himself a plan to use stolen gold to purchase arms for the defense of America. The various characters were well rounded and with the plot twists were woven into a well-written narrative which I enjoyed reading. Recommended.
David Hayes,

This is a fascinating novel about the lesser known War of 1812 – a conflict between the young United States and Britain. The book filled a few big gaps in my understanding of that period. The story begins in 1800 with a shipment of gold from London to the New World. The precious cargo is lost and will be hunted in the years to follow, leading the reader down the path of pirate adventures and political intrigues. The author strikes a fine balance between the coming-of-age part concerning Roland, the boy who knows where said gold is hidden, and the depiction of the historical facts. A fun read that should appeal particularly to younger readers.
