Tami, a writer and illustrator, grew up exploring the woods and waterways of historic Central Virginia. All those leafy, green hours nurtured within her a lifelong fascination with the natural world. Today she loves telling stories that spark that same curiosity and wonder in young readers, and also hopes to infuse them with a sense of hope and possibility.
Tami is a longtime member of SCBWI, and for 15 years has served as the graphic designer of the Highlighter, an ezine serving SCBWI’s Mid-Atlantic region. She lives in the Old Dominion with her two feline studio mates, two kids, one husband, and a small herd of rescued guinea pigs. When she’s not writing or illustrating, she’s spending time in libraries.
