Tamara Siler Jones started her academic career as a science geek, took up graphic design and earned a degree in art, and now writes forensic fantasy full time. She's an avid baker and quilter as well as a wife, mother and cat wrangler. Despite the gruesome nature of her work, Tam's easygoing and friendly. Not sick and twisted at all. Honest! Visit her online at www.tamarasilerjones.com. I also like to talk about breaking into publishing, getting an agent, the process of editing and constructing a manuscript, characters, mixing genres, and forensics. I enjoy visiting schools, especially for career days and in conjunction with reading programs.
