About the author:
Tammie Painter grew up in the creative world of Portland, Oregon, and she continues to call the City of Roses home. Although she spent years working as a chemist in a behavioral neuroscience research lab, she could never quite tame her desire to express herself through words and images. When circumstances provided her the chance to pursue an artistic career, she seized it and has never looked back.
As a writer, Tammie not only shows off her kitchen and garden skills in her non-fiction, but also has a passion for delving into and bringing life to history and mythology in her novels. She has been the recipient of numerous awards for her short stories and essays and has written hundreds of articles for local, national, and international magazines as well as the Internet.
As an artist, Tammie's love of nature shines through in her botanical and wildlife art, but that doesn't stop her from exploring other subjects such as the shiny curve of a car or a peek into the streets of Europe. Whatever she chooses to draw or paint, Tammie's work is characterized by its attention to realistic details and strong colors. In 2016, Tammie had to honor of being selected for a solo exhibition as part of the Artist Exhibit Program via the Clackamas County Arts Alliance.
Tammie plans to release Book Three of The Osteria Chronicles in 2016.

What Readers Are Saying:
"I usually don't read fiction but this I really liked. The stories were varied in the type of suspense/horror. To me these stories seem like a cross between Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock."
"I'm a huge fan of supernatural short stories, and this book was perfect. My favorite story, 'Island Ways' creeped me out in the way I only thought Stephen King could. Loved it!"
"This is a great collection of short stories! So well written, each story totally unique, a really great read! I will be recommending this book to all of my friends!"
