Tam DeRudder Jackson is the author of the Talisman Series. In her previous career, Tam was an award-winning high school English teacher. Today, she’s living her dream of writing novels. When she’s not writing, she’s reading all the books or carving turns on the ski runs in the mountains near her home in northwest Wyoming or traveling to places on her ever-expanding bucket list. Her two grown sons are the joys of her life, and she likes supporting her husband’s old car habit. If you ever see her holding a map, do her a favor and point her in the right direction. Navigation has never been her strong suit.
