Tim Moorey has been solving Times crosswords for over 50 years, having begun in his early teens. His setting career started at an equally early age, when he submitted puzzles to the London Evening News, who offered two guineas for each successful puzzle. His business career, as a financial controller and director of several BP subsidiary companies, allowed little time for more setting until 1991 when Tim started a second career at the Civil Service College and joined The Sunday Times team. He now sets crosswords as Mephisto and Owzat in various newspapers and magazines. In addition, having won the monthly Observer Azed contest many times, he was the joint winner in the annual competition for 2004/5. Tim also runs crossword workshops for beginners and, as the Cluru (the Clue Guru), provides help for puzzled puzzlers for the Crossword Club.
