Tamara Merrill is a true left brain/right brain woman. She excels at most anything “crafty” and is considered a talented teacher of both computer skills and painting. She has been (among other things) a writer, a school teacher, an administrator, a computer programer, and an artist. During the 60’s and 70’s she published multiple short stories in the popular women’s magazines of that era. But then the need for cash intervened and Tamara got a “real job” and stopped writing fiction. Now Tamara has stopped reading excessively (she admits to a book a day habit) and has begun writing again. FAMILY LIES is her first full length novel and is book one of the Augustus Family saga. Tamara currently resides in Coronado, CA.

Family Lies proved true to its title. The entanglement that accompanies the family's given social status with personal hopes and desires was intriguing. The attention given to character development (both main and secondary) provided enough details to imagine each character- what they looked like, what they were feeling, what direction life was pointing them in. As with the characters, the details and descriptions given to the story's setting made me feel as though I was traveling with each character on their given journey. The storyline held my attention the entire way through and left me hoping for more. I will definitely be watching for the next book!
