Tami Porter-Jones was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. She studied Computer Science at the University of Utah and worked in that field for nearly a decade before taking a hiatus from life and pursuing her passion for writing. She wrote Words Like Forever, because it was the type of book she wanted to read. She has lived in several different parts of the United States as well as Manchester, England. Recently, she moved back to Salt Lake City, Utah and spends her time fighting for human equality and women's equality, when she is not writing. She also has recently developed an interest in slam poetry.
She volunteers at the Utah Pride Center, attends rallies and tells anyone who will listen about the importance of voting.
There are two sequels to Words Like Forever currently underway.
