Tamar Sloan

Biography

Tamar’s love of romance started way back in adolescence, but she never thought she’d write the stories that had her reading deep into the night (by torch light so her parents wouldn’t catch her). But life does love a good curve ball and one day she woke up from a dream and a concept that wouldn't go away, and much cursing and passion filled hours later, the Prime Prophecy Series became a reality. What was even more rewarding was when her epic story of a love that defies boundaries won the Romance Writers of Australia 2015 First Kiss competition and finalised in the Heart of Denver 2015 Molly Award. The next thing she knew more characters came knocking, demanding for their lessons to be shared and their stories to be told.

As a youth worker who became a teacher, Tamar is now a school psychologist. Writing young adult was an inevitability that became a passion. As a long time reader of romance and a strong believer in the healing power of connection, romance was always going be the central focus of her writing. Her love of sharing has extended to her blog, PsychWriter: Where Psychology Meets Writing. PsychWriter is a fun, informative source of information on character development, the science of story, and how to engage readers.

When not reading, writing or working with teens, Tamar can be found with her ever-patient
husband and two beautiful sons enjoying country life on their small acreage in the Australian bush.
Tamar finds it deeply rewarding to share her stories and she loves to hear from her readers and fellow lovers of all things book related. You can find her at www.tamarsloan.com or on Facebook www.facebook.com.au/tamarsloanwriter or Twitter www.twitter.com/sloantamar.

Smashwords Interview

How did you become interested in writing?

My first book came to me in a dream (so cliché, right?). But it was an idea that wouldn't go away so I thought, maybe I could…
What's the story behind your latest book?
That very dream that started my writing journey! It was a beautiful dream — there were moving scenes of a boy who never came of age like every one of his kind has. It was a dream about a girl who has wounds of her own (and totally underestimates her potential) and their instantaneous connection. A connection powerful enough to spark Noah's change, and to challenge Eden's beliefs. It had to be written, which meant I had to go learn how to write…
