Author Interview: Tammie Clarke Gibbs

Tammie is the author of Island of Secrets, yesterday's book review.  Born in South Georgia, Tammie Clarke Gibbs developed an early love of the excentricities of being a "Southern" Girl and a true love of the written word. She's spent long afternoons on a pallet in the woods reading books and exercising her vivid imagination. While she loves helping others learn how to do a variety of things through her non-fiction writing, she is most at home writing fiction. "Island of Secrets" a time travel romance is her debut novel.
