About Me

I'm a nearly 50 year old writer. I have two books in progress but have been in the longest writer's block in the history of man.

I absolutely love to keep in touch with people with random mail. I guess it' the writer in me. Though sometimes I can be slow in getting back to someone, so it's like getting mail for no apparent reason.

I have two kids of my own, 28, 30. My fiance has 3 kids. I also have 4 beautiful grandchildren. Johnathan, Peyton, Zahara and Emani.

I'm enamored with my cats Earl, Opal and Oreo, which makes me a crazy cat lady, though if I could have a box full, I certainly would. Our part Pitt doggie rules the house and makes sure we know when it's time to go to bed, her name is Dolliah.

Favorite Books

I love all kinds of books, romance, biography/memoirs, history, paranormal anything (especially romance) etc.

The Stand - Stephen King

S - JJ Abrams and Doug Dorst

Virals Series by Kathy Reichs and Brendan Reichs

Doodle Art Alley Coloring Books

Deborah Harkness books

The Themis Files books by Sylvain Neuvel

Favorite Movies

My all-time favorite is Top Gun. I would have to say that the only movies I really care for are fantasy and romance/comedy. There are too many 'real life' horrors in today's news. I don't want to watch them in my spare time.

Ever After

Dirty Dancing

Beauty and the Beast

Favorite Television

Big Bang Theory








and Anything on the Food Network

I could keep going on, but I've probably already lost you.

Favorite Crafts


rock painting


making envelopes

and have just gotten into making fabric postcards.



Please don't send anything that smells like smoke. I have a horrible allergy to the smell and can't breathe.


I have a love for:

anything fantasy

anything to do with books







tea (any except ginger or green tea, not a fan)

stickers (no kawaii or children's stickers)

Post cards (I love love love love love them!) NAKED

buttons - I'm trying to fill my grandmother's button tin.

Ephemera of all types


I'd rather not have religious postcards/cards.

No scraps of paper that even you wouldn't use for something.

NO LADYBUGS. We have some here that bite and they give me panic attacks.

FLAKERS! Oh do I hate them. I give chances to resolve without rating down but, here are the ones who have flaked on me.

Comment: Great vintage PC, thank you! For reading I am on a biography kick right now- Betty Davis & Michelle Obama :)
Response: I’m currently listening to Becoming by Michelle Obama right now and I’m liking what I’m hearing. I’m still in her formative years. I can’t wait to hear what comes and then later years.
Artistic rated for Writing Goals for 2019 on Jan 12, 2019
Comment: You can do this! I would recommend a bullet journal style journal to help you meet that goal. I Googled articles to see what the fuss was about BuJo style journaling. I started one and like it so far. And you could post a public swap to find a round-robin partner (or review all the profiles of people in the WW group to see if anyone is interested in round-robin writing).
Response: Thank you for the wonderful boats of encouragement. I’m going to be looking into bullet journaling to see if that can help a little bit.

Response: Thank you for the encouragement I appreciate it so much.

Naeco on Sep 27, 2017:

I just found the "Swapbot Hilarious Fake Junk Mail" swap letter you sent me in Feb. 2016, re-read it, and had another good laugh. I haven't logged into swap-bot for quite a while but came back just to say you brightened my day with your ridiculous letter about buying a junk house! (:

TC on Jun 28, 2017:

Hey Tami, I'm getting ready to take an extended break from SB. Please let me know if the cootie catcher never arrived so I can get it re-sent before I exit.
