Tamara Passey, author of the The Christmas Tree Keeper: A Novel, was born and raised in Massachusetts around a large family, one that has served as inspiration for most of her writing. She was named Arizona Young Mother of the Year in 2013 and contributes marriage and family articles to FamilyShare.com. Mothering through the Whirlwind is her fist work of non-fiction. She loves most creative endeavors and when she isn't writing or re-writing, you can find her baking or cross-stitching or walking--though not all at the same time. She lives with her husband and three children in Arizona.
Q and A with the Author:
1. What is your favorite part of writing?
My favorite part of writing is when the story idea is fresh in my mind and I allow myself to put it all down on paper without editing, it feels a lot like when I rode my bike downhill with the wind in my hair.
