Tam Lykens was born and raised among the wheat fields and wine country of Southern California but discovered her love for writing stories while teaching drama to middle school students in Nashville, Tennessee. Her debut novel, Victor, a historical fiction for Middle Grade readers, was published in Australia during a nine-year residency. While simultaneously working as a barista, Lykens completed her BA in English for Creative Writing and now resides in America’s Pacific Northwest completing Victor’s sequel, Ardith, and a Middle Grade urban fantasy, Ambassador.
Tam’s first novel, Victor is available on Amazon now. See the Books page for a free preview.
Tam also writes free articles on her blog that center around the endeavor to help Middle Grade readers find their personal strengths and gain hope in the knowledge of their own important role in this world (aka: their superpowers).
