Tamara Philip


After spending most of her life in New York City, Tamara Philip decided to let love lead her on an international adventure, where she’s met many amazing people and ate entirely too much. Tamara and her English-born fiance, Chris, now split their time between the United Kingdom and The Caribbean.

The Trouble with Playing Cupid was her debut novel, and The Trouble with Romance, Book 2 in the Cupid Series. Writing has been her secret passion since childhood. Quirky female leads are her trademark.

On any given day you can find Tamara telling people what to do, dodging wedding planning, and working hard on her next novel.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love when the plot bunnies hit me and I can just envision the whole thing playing out in front of my eyes. I get so excited that no matter where I am or what I have to write on, I need to get it down some way, somehow. I mean I’ve even written a story on crumpled Bounty towels. It’s exhilarating. Then when I get to start typing it up, the story unfolds in a completely different way than I thought it would and it’s even better. I love it!
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I have the worst memory for this kind of thing but my Mom said I started writing stories when I was 9. My teacher told her I had a knack for creative writing and that stuck with me throughout my life.
