Tammy Jo Burns


From a young age I could always be found carrying around books to read while watching my grandmother's soap operas with her. I read anything and everything I could get my hands on and even made up skits and stories for my friends and me to act out. Once I outgrew the children's and YA books, my mom introduced me to an entirely new world -contemporary romance. Upon discovering I had a love for history I began devouring historical romances. One day, sitting in a college British History class, something the professor said made me think, I wonder. I quickly called mom (also a writer) and ran the idea by her. After being told, "Of course you can do it, you're my daughter," the rest, as they say, is history.

I currently share my love of reading with the next generation as a high school librarian, and share my personal life with my demanding dog trapped in a cat's body, Ajax.

My debut novel, A Traitorous Heart, Book One of The Reluctant Lords series can now be found on multiple platforms and in print.

Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
My desks, at work and at home, are lost amidst a pile of books, papers, doodlings, and sometimes my cat, Ajax.
When did you first start writing?
I first set pen to paper in college. I was sitting in a World History class and the professor mentioned something that would have sounded mundane to most, but sparked an idea in me. I jotted down the idea so I would not forget and as quickly as I could called my mom, also a fellow writer, and ran it by her. There was no stopping me after that.
