Arlene Timoney

Author, Adventures In Time  and Adventures In Time 2--The Treasure


     After retiring from a successful career in broadcasting, Arlene Timoney decided to forgo the usual fun of bingo and shuffleboard and get back to a hobby she’s always loved, writing. Inspired by stories of adventure from her immigrant grandfather, Arlene never lost her fascination with travel, history and technology. Her books “Adventures In Time”and " Adventures In Time 2--The Treasure," have allowed her to combine those passions by merely adding in the element of time travel. Now living in Florida, Ms. Timoney has ample time to enjoy her tropical surroundings, and often wishes she could go back in time and walk the beach again with her mother, where they would laugh and talk and solve all the world’s problems in just one, sunny afternoon.

Tim Bonsper

My collaborator extraordinaire, and my cousin!

     Born 1957 in Glen Ridge New Jersey, Tim spent his formative years first in Edison, then East Brunswick NJ. After graduating from high school, Tim began what has turned into a lifetime of volunteer work. Joining the East Brunswick Rescue Squad at age 18, he spent 12 years as a volunteer Emergency Medical Technician. While attending college, Tim was given the opportunity to learn computer programming which became his full time career for the next 35 years. Married in 1993 to Bernadine (nee Szymanski) the couple moved to Bayville NJ in 1994. During their time in Bayville, Tim joined the Coast Guard Auxiliary and continued his volunteer career by working every Saturday at Coast Guard Station Barnegat Light, both as a radio watchstander and boat crew member at one of the busiest Coast Guard units in NJ. Part of his duties was the training of active duty and reserve Coasties in proper radio procedures.  After moving to Punta Gorda Florida in 2009, Tim continued with his Coast Guard Auxiliary work.  Retiring from computer programming in 2018, he and Bernadine moved one more time to St. Petersburg, FL to be closer to family.  Always the volunteer, Tim now spends time with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission rescuing marine mammals (manatees, dolphins and whales) that have become injured or ill.
