Tamara Boyens

Biography

I'm a PhD student in Second Language Acquisition and Teaching--I study how people learn other languages. I also have degrees in speech-language pathology, audiology, and applied linguistics. In the past, I worked as a veterinary technician. This is reflected in the Feathered Trilogy books, which are all available on this site. All three were NaNoWriMo novels, (the third of which is in progress at the moment) so I apologize for the lack of editing and proper formatting. I hope you enjoy the stories nonetheless, because I had a great time writing them.
