Originally from Orangeville, Ontario Canada, Tammy Farrell has given away all her mittens and now lives with her husband and six fur babies in sunny Greenville, South Carolina where she is a full-time novelist. Some might say her writing career began at the age of six when she singlehandedly wrote and illustrated the epic adventure of The Halloween Witch And The Pyramids. Tammy never considered it a masterpiece, but her parents certainly did.

Her passion for all things dark and mysterious began in 4th grade when she purchased her first copy of The Collected Works of Edgar Allan Poe (she has about 15 copies now, because she can’t stop buying new editions). She would later fall in love with the works of Charles Dickens, the Brontë sisters, Mary Shelley, and Charles Baudelaire, but it wasn’t until she read Blood and Gold by Anne Rice that she knew she wanted to be a writer.

Inspired by her beloved Poe and Ms. Rice, Tammy Farrell wrote the first book in her historical fantasy series The Dia Chronicles, which was published in January 2014. Tammy now has five published works within two series. Her novels are often dark, character driven, and explore the grittier side of human nature within a fantasy setting. Unlike conventional fantasy novels that focus on male-driven plots and themes, Tammy’s novels focus on female protagonists that must overcome the injustices of a male-driven world. While her heroes are courageous and strong, and her villains can win hearts as easily as they can break them, Tammy’s goal is to empower her heroines, even when they think all hope is lost.
