Hello, everyone! In my continuing quest to showcase other authors and their routines, I’m welcoming special guest Tamara Grantham to the blog today. She’s the author of the Fairy World MD series and a personal friend. Without further ado, here she is to tell us a little about her writing space!
I have 5 kiddos and don’t have the luxury of having a writing cave. Instead, I have learned to embrace the chaos.I write in the kitchen where I can keep an eye on my littlest two minions. The 1 year old has learned how to push over the trash can, and he usually does it when there’s something wet inside. Like old milk. The 3 year old likes to follow the 1 year old and correct him frequently, which includes hitting and pushing. Thus, while writing about heroes questing through the wilds of Fairy World, confronting goblins and elves, I have my own little goblin and elf to keep me company. I wouldn’t trade them for the world.
People ask me how I write with 5 kids. My answer: I wouldn’t survive motherhood without it. And my life wouldn’t be nearly as fun without them.
Forget the fairies and unicorns, most people return from fairy world with lost memories and mental problems. Olive Kennedy knows. She’s the therapist who treats patients suffering from Faythander’s side effects.
Traveling back to the fairy realm wasn’t on Olive’s to-do list. But she has no choice. The fate of both Earth and Fairy depends on her ability to stop an ancient being called the Dreamthief. To complicate matters, she may be losing her heart to someone who can’t love her in return. Saving the world, she can handle. Falling in love—not so much.
Dreamthief is the Amazon #1 bestseller in both Mythology and Fairy Tales. With over 100 five-star reviews on Amazon and Goodreads, Dreamthief is an imaginative, romantic fantasy for fans of The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. Morgan Stamm of InD’tale magazine says, “[Dreamthief] springs to life from the very first sentence.”
Olive’s to-do list: Pay the rent, feed the cat, save Faythander. Again.
When the fairy realm faces a new, terrifying threat from a goblin Spellweaver, Olive Kennedy leaves her home in Houston to travel through the most dangerous places in Faythander in order to confront him. While there, she learns that history is a muddled subject, especially when elves are involved. Her only comfort comes from Kull, her Viking warrior sidekick—who somehow negates her bad fortune. Yet how long can their relationship last when his past is brought to light? Olive will be tested beyond anything she has endured so far as the secrets of Faythander’s sordid and bloody past are exposed—one that could irrevocably alter the future and destroy the lives of everyone she loves.
Perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas, Spellweaver is the riveting sequel to the award-nominated Dreamthief.
Olive Kennedy doesn’t believe in fairy tales. In a desperate attempt to earn income, fairy world therapist Olive Kennedy resorts to finding clients at the Texas Renaissance Festival. When she discovers the corpse of her client’s husband discarded in her booth, she realizes that earning her next paycheck is the least of her worries. Even worse, Olive learns the murderer may be a magical monster from the fairy realm. The fae and their escorts arrive from Faythander to aid in the investigation, but they do not travel alone. Olive must confront the one person she never wished to see again. Kull—her ex.
After months with no contact from Faythander, Olive hoped the magical drama was over. Yet it seems she’ll never escape the beings who haunt her nightmares or be free from the man who took away her happily ever after.
