If you are unfamiliar with Tim Federle, pause for a second and follow him on Twitter. If you don’t have a Twitter, make one just so you can follow him. Trust me, you won’t regret it.

Tim is the author of several books, including The Great American Whatever (a FANTASTIC young adult book we just so happen to be featuring an extended excerpt of from now through May 8), the Better Nate Than Ever series (middle grade), and Tequila Mockingbird and Gone with the Gin (both cocktail recipe books). But writing books isn’t Tim’s only claim to fame. He been on Broadway as a dancer and choreographer and also wrote the book for Tuck Everlasting the musical.

In the few brief moments he has throughout his day when he isn’t writing or dancing, Tim is often Tweeting. And we’re so, so lucky he is. With his signature wit and relatability, Tim is the hero we need but don’t deserve. Here’s the proof:

And even when he’s too busy to Tweet, he thinks of us first.
