Canberra, Australia

Tamar must have been someone pretty awesome in a previous life (past life regression indicated a Care Bear), because she gets paid to live out both her passions - psychology and writing. Beginning her career as a youth worker, then a secondary school teacher, before becoming a school psychologist, Tamar helps children and teens to live and thrive despite life’s hurdles like loss, relationship difficulties, mental health issues and trauma.

As a writer Tamar created the PsychWriter blog – a fun, informative font of information on character development, the science of story and how to engage readers. A firm believer in the power of paying it foward, Tamar discovered she could channel her passion for learning into a passion for sharing knowledge.

As an even longer lover of reading, inspired by books far more captivating than Dreamworks or Paramount or Universal, Tamar loves to write young adult romance. To be honest, it was probably inevitable that her knowledge and love of literature would translate into writing emotion driven stories of love and resilience.

A lifetime consumer of knowledge, Tamar holds degrees in Applied Science, Education and Psychology. When not reading, writing or working with teens, Tamar can be found with her husband and two children enjoying country life on their small slice of the Australian bush.
