About Lea Tassie

Lea Tassie grew up in the Peace River district of northern BC. Due to six months of winter and two months poor sledding, she started reading books as soon as she could hang on to one. She has traveled and worked in many places, which may explain why she can’t stick to one genre as an author. Her books include humor (about cats), romantic suspense, mainstream and lately, speculative fiction. When she discovered the temperate rainforest stretching along 1200 miles of the Pacific Coast, from Oregon to Alaska, she quit traveling and settled in for good.

Review by: Barbara McDonell on Aug. 16, 2018 :
We all use many of the hackneyed sayings author Lea Tassie cites (i.e. “close, but no cigar”)...but do we ever stop to wonder how they came to be? (I’d never heard the word “lethological” but, as a senior, I certainly related to that one!) As Lea delves into their fascinating - and sometimes head-shaking – history and evolvement, the reader also discovers a lot of interesting things about the author herself (Hint: She loves food, a glass of good whiskey and she’s very very funny).

Two Shakes of a Lamb’s Tail will arm you with great conversation-starting data for your next cocktail or dinner party!
