About the Author

Tamra Orr

I think I knew I wanted to be a writer since I was a little girl. I loved reading and writing, and always felt I expressed myself best on paper. (On the other hand, I ran screaming into the night if I faced a math problem.) I graduated from college with the intention of becoming an English teacher, but life had other plans in store for me.

I met my future husband and ended up moving to a different city, and then, becoming mother to one, two, three, and then four children. I wanted to stay at home with them while they were little, so I began writing. At first, it was for free--local newspapers and those freebies magazines you were given in the grocery stores. I slowly built up my credentials--and my experience.

In 1990, I wrote my first educational children's book. I was hooked! I loved researching, I loved kids, I loved writing--it was the perfect direction for me. Now, more than 27 years later, I've been fortunate enough to write hundreds of books. I have written about amazing people, incredible places, and astounding history. I learn every single day and do a lot of it in my PJs, or a pair of shorts, a tank top, and flip-flops. Best of all, I was able to stay home with my kids. Now they are all adults, but I'm still writing. I plan to do so until my fingers just won't manage on the keyboard anymore. (Hopefully, by then, they will have invented a virtual keyboard to use.)

I welcome questions, comments, and contact from people who have read my books. In my "spare time", I am a letter writer, camper, reader, and hoarder of all things paper. Between my soulmate husband, my four wonderful kids, and my fulfilling career, I am one of the luckiest people in the world.

PLEASE NOTE: I have over 400 titles on Amazon, but this site, for some reason, refuses to list many of them. If you want a full list, look up my name instead. (Tamra Orr)
