My new book, TAM'S JOURNEY:
A FAIRY TALE FOR ALL BEINGS, IS AVAILABLE!
I woke up on a Saturday morning 25 years ago with the words, "Pam's Charge," in my head. My inner voice corrected me, No, Tam's charge. Who's Tam and what's a charge? I wanted to know.
For the next few weeks I simply wrote what I saw and what I heard in my head. I thought here's a short story, but no, 150 plus pages later I had a novel. And, now it has illustrations. Here's a taste:
A charge, as everyone knows, is a human that a fairy watches over. Fairies offer love and encouragement; no fairy would ever interfere or judge her charge. But Tam did. And that is where our story begins...in the kitchen of Tam's charge.
"I can't face this mess," the charge groaned just staring at the dirty dishes piled in the sink. Then the human shuffled into the dining room and sank into the oak chair. She shook her head in despair accidentally dumping Tam from her left shoulder.
Tam scrambled back up to her left shoulder position and exploded, "Honestly, ungrateful human. She IS a mess! She's as stupid as an elf."
Tam had no loving support to offer as other fairies would. She crossed her arms over the fairy chest in frustration, letting a little hum go though her wings. Completely unaware that her charge was ready to burst into tears, Tam began examining her wings. She was acting very un-fairy-like, she was not practicing her Fairy Fundamentals. In fact, Tam was in deep trouble for her horrid behavior.
As Anna Trumbo, said, "I read Tam when I was 11 years old, and it was my favorite book. I'm 34 now. I read all the time, and it's still my favorite book."
If you'd like to join Tam and her fairy friends on their adventures, you'll find my first book in the Fairy Fundamental Series: Tam's Journey: A Fairy Tale forAll Beings on amazon.com
