Tammy L. Grace
Born and raised in Nevada, Tammy loved reading at a young age. With the help of her middle school teacher, she discovered the joy of writing. After spending a career in local and state government service, she retired and finally has the time to dedicate to writing.
When Tammy isn’t working on ideas for a novel, she’s spending time with family and friends or supporting her addiction to books and chocolate. She and her husband have one grown son and a spoiled golden retriever. She enjoys a variety of fiction, but is always drawn to characters she loves and wants to be transported to another place when reading.
Tammy invites you to join her exclusive reader group by subscribing on her website and she’ll send you a free interview with all the dogs in her Hometown Harbor Series as a thank you gift.

Born in Liverpool, Di started her working life as a librarian. Like her characters, she loves her family and friends, beautiful shoes, anything sparkly, the occasional drink, parties, and a good belly laugh. She’s addicted to shopping, chocolate, bubble baths, and trash TV.
Di lives in a renovated farmhouse in New Zealand with her Great Danes Dolce and Gabbana and her two cats Charlie and Jamie. The dogs keep her fit and exercised, scare the burglars away, sit loyally by her side throughout late night writing sessions, and hang on her every word when she reads final drafts aloud. The cats hang out by themselves and ignore Di and the dogs.
Di loves her life, but not so much that there’s not room to live a load of other lives through the hearts and minds of her characters, all of whom she adores, and some of whom she’s fortunate enough to call friends. You can get one of Di’s e-books free when you subscribe to her email list.

Cassidy has always been an avid reader. She is especially fond of mysteries (both cozy and traditional). Cassidy has never met a dog she didn’t like – a fact that influenced her decision to have the protagonist in “Think Murder,” her first mystery, volunteer at a dog rescue center.
When she’s not reading, Cassidy enjoys singing in an a cappella ensemble. Most of all, Cassidy enjoys spending time with family and friends and travels with her husband and son. Her travels have taken her to destinations throughout the United States, Europe, and Scandinavia. You can subscribe to Cassidy’s newsletter by clicking here.
Terri discovered the wonderful world of fiction at an early age and declared she would one day write a book. Although she always wanted to be a writer, it took her many years to finally pursue a career in writing. Now she is fulfilling her dream writing full-time. She had several other careers along the way. She was a model for ten years working in New York City, Chicago, and San Francisco. She also worked as a teller, a sales clerk, and a receptionist. Being a writer is by far the best job she has ever had.
Terri lives in Oregon with her college sweetheart husband, two wonderful children, and an array of critters. When she is not writing, Terri enjoys spending time with her family and friends, gardening, and playing tennis. You can sign up for news and special offers from Terri on her website.
Kass loves writing, psychology, dogs, horses, her family and her friends, not necessarily in that order. In her youth, she was told that writers need day jobs in order to eat. Partial to food, she studied psychology.
Now retired from a successful career as a psychotherapist and college professor, she spends most of her time in an alternate universe with her characters. The magic portal to this universe (i.e., her computer) is located in northern Florida, where her husband catches occasional glimpses of her.
The few hours that Kass isn’t writing, she can be found curled up with a book, binge-watching Big Bang Theory reruns, or walking her American Staffordshire Terrier mix rescue dog, Dr. Watson. You can sign up for Kass’s newsletter on her website.
Tracy grew up on a dairy farm in Montana and spent her childhood surrounded by dogs, cats, cows, and a variety of other animals too numerous to mention. At age eighteen, she left the farm and moved to Seattle.
A certified yoga therapist, Tracy is the owner of Whole Life Yoga in Seattle. Tracy loves sharing her passion for yoga and animals in any way possible. Tracy and her husband Marc live with their precocious German shepherd Ana. When she’s not writing, Tracy spends her time teaching yoga, trying to corral Ana, and sipping Blackthorn cider at her favorite ale house.
