About Tamela Buhrke

I confess. I have a problem. For me, paranormal fiction started young. I used to sneak reads at night by catching the streetlight at my window. On the outside, I was a normal kid. Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, reading kept me quiet and out of trouble. But on the inside, my imagination swelled like an alien fetus in an unwary human host. My sweaty hands gripped pages bubbling with witches, ghosts and magic. The stranger the tale, the greater the journey, the bigger the monsters... the drunker I became.

Drunk on paranormal fantasy.

At seven, I was writing short stories about fantastical creatures. At fifteen, I started a few novels, but never finished. In my twenties, I mainlined Anita Blake stories and went hardcore into urban fantasy addiction. Soon I would absorb so much paranormal juiciness, that it would start oozing out my fingertips. They twitched to write an urban fantasy of my own. In my thirties, I could be seen at local coffee houses of Tempe, Arizona, devouring books, mumbling and jotting down story notes. It's taken many (a lady never tells how many) years of shaky typing, but now my words are in print.

The cycle is complete. I can only hope that my words will infect you in the same way.

Andi Andreas is a Chicago transplant and psychic/medium newbie. She only learned of her talent after getting into a car accident four years ago that consequently killed her father. She was taken under the wing of Ethel, a veteran psychic living in Phoenix, Arizona. But now Ethel has retired and moved to Boca and Andi is struggling to pay the bills. And when Andi ‘reads’ a customer for Frank, the hot owner of a local coffee shop, all hell breaks loose and a whole new world is revealed. She thought being psychic was weird, but the vampires, demons, and angels teach her that what she thought she knew was just the tip of the iceberg.

Andi is not your average heroine; she barely can keep together her own little world. I think that is what made me like her even more. She is relatable and kind of a spaz. I can’t count the times I laughed out loud while reading her inner monologue. The things that happen to Andi are so extreme and outrageous that you would think it would become too much for the reader, but it doesn’t. The situations were displayed in a way that I could really picture happening and her reactions were real which means she didn’t pick up a sword and suddenly have all these abilities.


The characters that author Tamela Buhrke created were all interesting and dynamic, even the minor characters. My favorite character was by far Johnny, even though he never actually speaks. I could picture him dancing around Andi’s apartment in LARPing garb with his scabbard and eye patch. Of the three men that are a possible love interest to Andi I like Esteban the best. I imagined his accent to sound something like Antonio Banderas and his connection to Andi is something I can’t wait to see fleshed out. Macy was annoying and whiny and I’m not quite sure if I was Andi that I would keep her around. Someone who doesn’t believe you and is jealous of almost everything you do isn’t a friend or at least a good one.


I really liked the desert setting in Phoenix. I could picture everything realistically because I had been there before. The scene with the scorpions being dumped on Andi’s head truly gave me the heebie-jeebies. There were a few things that could be explained better or at least more succinctly and some dots that could be connected but overall Angel Unraveled was a fun urban fantasy romp. I will be reading book two Angel Unprepared which is out now.
