Tammy J. Trail’s writing career began with winning a contest in the 6th grade. As an adult, she attended her first writing conference in 2010 to learn the art of storytelling on paper. A lover of history, it only made sense that this is the genre in which she chose to write.

Since 2014, she has contributed to the Writing Prompts blog. Tammy resides in Kansas with her husband, Tim, who has become her faithful editor and enthusiastic supporter of her writing endeavors. She is currently working on her first novel set during the American Revolution. Find Tammy at Facebook and Twitter.
