Tammie Rothermel, The Author
"I can’t remember a time when I didn’t see the world in words,” remarks the author Tammie Rothermel. It’s never just “snowing.” It’s “big, goose down feathers of snow layered freshness across the countryside.” As a child, invented characters and pretend circumstances enriched her play and protected her against the scrapes and knocks childhood dished up. Always writing, even in grade school, Tammie created quick little dramas for her school friends to act out during recess. Gripped by the British music invasion during her time at North Farmington High, Tammie actually met the Beatles on their first transcontinental tour of the U.S. She produced two books chronicling life on the road with one of the lightning-hot groups. From her first creative writing assignment at Central Michigan University, her English professors recognized her innate talent. There Tammie honed her writing skills and use of imagery. Marriage, family and a job as an executive manager of an Arizona Chamber of Commerce redirected her slant. Tammie’s laser-precise articles stimulated political action inside her community, where she earned the reputation as a “compelling word smith.” Working for an economist with dual doctorates from Oxford, further sharpened her talents as she edited his daily writings and three books. The Independent Book Publishers rewarded her first published effort with “Winner” in the Romance category of their national competition. Tammie’s latest endeavor - the More! quadrilogy has already generated unbridled excitement. Tammie Rothermel and her husband have resided in Arizona for the past 45 years along with their four daughters’ families.
More! so much more than a romance novel:
