About the author

Tamara Ruth

Tamara Ruth is a former chemical engineer. She gave up a fascinating life manufacturing bulk chemicals at a smelly plant for the joys of parenthood.

Just so you know, that smelly plant was easier.

Because Tamara reads a lot, she wanted to pass that joy on to her kids. Writing books with her eldest became a way to maintain an interest in reading when learning to read became difficult. They write, illustrate, and publish together. Tamara's eldest is proud to tell anyone who'll listen that she is "a published author."

But how to include the younger kiddo?

That's when Tamara decided to write stories about her actual kids. Calling them Emma and Ava, the two kids star in a series entirely about them.

In case you're interested, the days are never dull or boring for Tamara.

The whole family lives in central Illinois. Tamara has plans for a wide range of stories. It's all just a matter of time...
