Tami Dee Tells All
January 22, 2007 | Interviews
Hi, Tami Dee, welcome aboard. I’m looking forward to chatting with you. Thank you for being here all week.
I am so happy to be here, Sloane.
ST: Please tell us a little about yourself.
TD: Reading has always been as necessary in my life as breathing air. I have always wanted to write, but until a couple of years ago did not dare to attempt it. I have dyslexia and although it does not affect my ability to read, it has a tremendous effect on my writing abilities. I can spell the same word wrong, six different ways, and often times I will write a sentence completely backwards. When I was in school, dyslexia was more or less unknown to educators. My consistently failing grades were a source of heartache and frustration for my teachers and myself.
My writing takes place after a full time job in the Human Resources Department of a large school district, and between spending time with my husband, three grown daughters, and a one year old granddaughter.
ST: Your current release, UNDER A VIKING MOON, is exciting and very sensual with excellent reviews from the top sites. Please tell us about the book.
TD: UNDER A VIKING MOON is a time travel romantic adventure. It is a story of legends, family, loyalty, responsibility, honor, determination, trust, and betrayal. Leif Nabboddrson, a Norse Jarl living in the year 900, and Katla ‘Kat’ Jonsdottir, a modern young woman who has survived the streets of San Francisco on her own since she was fifteen, are strong characters who each have their own, individual goals and responsibilities, strengths and weaknesses. Their challenge is compelling as they are swept through time. Each has the charge to save the family lines very existence and the only hope either can do so is to destroy what they love the most. Each other.
UNDER A VIKING MOON is a labor of love. I put my whole heart into the writing of this epic love story and to this day I feel close to my hero and heroine.
ST: Tami, you’ve achieved an excellent story and your love for it shines in your writing. How did you come up with the story line?
TD: Where do I come up with all my story lines? In my dreams! I have learned to have a pen and paper close to my night stand so I can scribble my dreams down before I forget them.
ST: That’s a great idea. Thanks for sharing it. Please tell us where everyone can buy UNDER A VIKING MOON.
TD: At Triskelion Publishing, www.triskelionpublishing.net then type in Tami Dee is the search box. The specific link is here.
ST: Thanks, Tami, for being so open with us. I look forward to tomorrow when we learn more about you and your method of writing.
If anyone has questions, please ask, Tami will be here throughout the day and night to respond.
