About Tami

STORY TELLER. LIFE & SPACE JUNKIE. PIZZA AND BURGER ADDICT.

I was born in London, which is a seriously cool & inspirational city. I believe in writing outside of the box, in love deep and rare, in great authors who motivate the mental juices, in making dreams & goals real, and I am grateful to be born after the invention of air travel. I have met so many interesting people or overheard bits of conversations on buses, tubes etc., that coil their way into my writing. It’s the world around us that influences me and stokes my curiosity, including the little details, which I convey to my characters.

I now live in the North East of England and am equally enthralled with the surrounding countryside, cities, villages and coast, which all offer different kinds of stimulation. It still hasn’t sunk in that it takes as long for me to get to Newcastle, Durham, York or even Leeds as it does to get from one part of London to another.

 

It has been a dream come true for me to publish my novels as ebooks and paperbacks, and to know they're being read and enjoyed by so many gives me great satisfaction.

 

Anyway, believe in miracles and work damn hard to make your personal goals (whether creating a garden on a tiny balcony 20 floors up or writing the stories that you've stored in your head forever) real. Remember to have fun doing it. I do.

  • *Due to BBC Radios privacy laws etc., the link to the interview is unfortunately no longer available* This was a great experience. The interview at the BBC studio lasted for a whole wonderful hour and I got to choose a few of my favourite tracks which was really cool too. Usually it only takes a glass or two of wine for me to talk and talk, but no alcohol before the interview and boy could I still talk and talk (no wallflower here). Ha! I was on too much of a high to need any alcohol afterwards though we celebrated with a fab meal.
