Timothy Good (born in Londen in 1941) is one of Britain's best known UFO researchers, and a former professional violinist. He has written several books and made a number of TV documentaries as well.

Timothy Good first became interested in UFOs in 1955, when his passion for aviation and space led him to read a book by Major Donald Keyhoe describing UFO sightings by qualified observers such as military and civilian pilots. In 1961, after reading a book by Captain Edward J. Ruppelt, a U.S. Air Force intelligence officer, he began to conduct his own research. Since then, he has amassed a wealth of evidence, including several thousand declassified intelligence documents. His worldwide research, interviewing key witnesses and discussing the subject with astronauts, military and intelligence specialists, pilots, politicians and scientists, have established Good as an authority on UFOs and the alien presence.

Timothy Good's first book, co-authored with Lou Zinsstag, was "George Adamski, The Untold Story". This was privately published in 1983. His second book, Above Top Secret: The Worldwide UFO Cover-up (1987) became an instant bestseller, and is regarded widely as the definitive work on the subject, together with the fully revised and updated book replacing it, Beyond Top Secret: The Worldwide UFO Security Threat (1996), which remained for five weeks on the Sunday Times bestseller list. Alien Liaison: The Ultimate Secret (1991) spent thirteen weeks on the same bestseller list. Alien Base: Earth's Encounters with Extraterrestrials (1998) went to No.4 on the Guardian bestseller list. His book, Unearthly Disclosure: Conflicting Interests in the Control of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (2000) was serialized in the Daily Mail. In 2006/2007 Need to Know was published in paperback in the U.K., U.S and Canada. Good’s latest work - EARTH: An Alien Enterprise – was published by Pegasus Books (New York) in November 2013.
