I turn wickedly strong tea into historical fantasy fiction in which the gods, heroes, and myths of Ancient Greece come to life as you've never seen them before. When I'm not creating worlds or killing off characters, I wrangle honeybees to add a little adventure into my non-writing life.
Tammie Painter grew up in the creative world of Portland, Oregon, and she continues to call the City of Roses home. Although she spent years working as a chemist in a behavioral neuroscience research lab, she could never quite tame her passion for writing.
Tammie has a knack for delving into and bringing life to history and mythology in her novels. Her fascination for myths, history, and how they interweave inspired the Osteria Chronicles series.
The current titles in the six-book series include
*The Trials of Hercules
*The Bonds of Osteria (coming soon)
When she isn't (but probably should be) writing, Tammie can be found digging in her garden, planning her next travel adventure, creating art, or persuading her hive of backyard bees to share some of their honey with her.

An Introduction to Natural Beekeeping
on May 04, 2013
This is a handy little book to have when others ask you why you in the world you would want to keep bees. Chandler provides an excellent overview of why we need to change how we keep bees and why we should keep them. It's not an instruction book for beekeeping, but does provide a few pointers.
