My Story

Timothy Durning has developed a unique voice through his experiences on a “path less traveled.” His stories of success, failure, and tragedy resonate across a wide section of us, namely the ordinary, the exiles, the misfits, those of us who come so close only to somehow fall short. His work is raw and unapologetic. Tim has had success in the food industry as a chef for over 35 years. He has also made strides in the fitness industry, earning an IFBB pro-card and helping others to work toward and do the same. He has seen incredible highs but has experienced some horribly dark times as well. Somehow, someway, he has made it through, albeit many times with a lack of grace, yet still stands on the other side to share his experiences, to give reason to the pain. He trusts that life will always show up, at times serendipitously but also, invariably, with the proverbial kick to the face. Tim has seen the rain and has seen that rain fall on us all, so even after the worst that life throws at us, he understands that, life, does indeed, go on.


 “The narrative moves along easily, though it's not an easy story to read.  When I finished the chapter where…I had to put it down and sit for a moment. It was as though everything had gone silent. It was this that took me from "this is a good book" to "this is an outstanding book.""
