About Tamara

Writer, hiker, food lover, book nerd. Fuelled by Doritos, Chocolate Sultanas and Shiraz, Tamara tells stories of hope, love, friendship and family. She is the 2017 R*by award nominated author of The Rise of Jaz and the 2018 ARRA nominated author of Almost Perfect.

Tamara lives in the Adelaide burbs, sighs over John Hughes’ movies, RomComs, Outlander and Thor. When she’s not writing, she’s spending lazy Sunday’s in the Barossa, eating noodles on Rundle Street or camping out at the local cinema with a giant box of popcorn. She has three nephews and two nieces she adores and spoils and loves nothing more than watching super hero movies and talking Star Wars with master 14 or playing makeup artist with Miss 4 or whatever else any of them think up.

Tamara has created a community of wisdom in her My Favourite Things blog and Facebook group where she shares some of her favourite things, people, charities and whatever else she thinks might add value to her readers’ lives and she loves it when everyone interacts and shares their favourite things, too.

I love Tamara's writing. Characters I want to go to bat for, descriptions that made me feel like I was right there. I was drawn in from the first paragraph and invested till the very end
