Tamara Woods doesn’t spend her time sipping on Mai Tais on the beach. In fact by living in Hawaii, she’s found that she’s more of a mountain person than a beachy one. Must be her West Virginia roots. Maybe that’s why there’s such a strong call to small towns and country living in her books whether they’re women’s literature or cozy mysteries. She likes to talk about writing and books on her YouTube channel. She hosts a weekly Twitter called #writestuff where writers talk about writing. She is the author of the poetry collection, “The Shaping of an ‘Angry’ Black Woman.” And she is consistently working on the next novel. She’s a hillbilly hermit in Honolulu living with her Mathmagician.
