A Dedication to RBG




Yesterday, I mourned. Today, I wake up another day to fight. I used to think that stories were just that. Dragons and magic, tech and battles, or just about personal demons.

But, even the short erotica I published, Adoration, had a theme of empowerment for women, of not accepting a mediocre existence.

Writers have an opportunity every time they tell a story, to tell one that is themed on how the world is and what they think the world should be like.

When I die, I don’t want to be famous, but if one person is inspired by my stories, then I will die having achieved my goal in this fight.

Tammy loves to build worlds with words, exploring themes the effect of diaspora on the generations born elsewhere than their ancestors with the backdrop of tech or magic and dragons (sometimes both). These stories are inspired by her own family's immigrant experience. She's queer and many of her characters fall somewhere on the LGBTQIA spectrum (though that is not the focus of her work). She's married to an engineer who dances. Together they are raising three precocious teens in the Seattle suburbs. Two of her children are neurodiverse. Her experiences have taught her as much about the world, its beauties and its injustices. All of this comes through in her fiction with a healthy dose of absurd humor.
