Tammy Merkison's love for writing began as a child writing creative stories for school projects. Her ability at painting vivid pictures for the reader's imagination made her assignments highly sought after by peer selection for reading aloud. Leaving creative writing behind, Tammy began professionally writing in the aviation maintenance industry writing specs for the training of skilled professionals. Never far from her heart was always that desire for crafting words from her imagination.
In 2004, through much prayer, Tammy decided to live her life's passion and re-enter the world of creative writing, placing one stipulation on herself, to write realistic fiction with a positive message. She says: "My goal is to capture realism by illustrating life's choices and the subsequent consequences of those choices made."
A local model and actress, Tammy has appeared in numerous hair and fashion shows in and around the Central Florida area in addition to television and radio commercials, promoting health and wellness.
She currently lives in Atlanta and enjoys traveling and live jazz in addition to writing fiction with a positive message.
