Writer in residence: Tim Booth

Tim Booth is an intensive care paramedic who worked for six years in south-west Sydney, patching up the sickest, strangest, and silliest of patients who called 000 for all manner of trauma and triviality. Prior to his career in healthcare, Tim was a motoring journalist who worked for Top Gear Australia magazine. He continues to punish himself with the gruelling night shifts and long days that being a paramedic demands, and occasionally revisits his former life in the form of freelance journalism on the side. After surviving the worst that the COVID-19 pandemic threw at the ambulance service, Tim now works as a paramedic on the north coast of NSW.
