ABOUT THE AUTHOR:



Tammy James Hesler’s early life was a bizarre combination of island hopping through the Conch Republic, and dodging alligators deep in the Everglades. Loop road sported two bars and one gas station. The sixty mile long dirt road wound its way through the big cypress swamp. Virtually none of the local residents obeyed the only rules posted outside of Florida's roughest tavern, which read, "No Guns or Knives Inside,"

Most reluctantly, she left Seminole Indian territory, and all of its colorful inhabitants and natural wildlife. Hopping aboard the "Orange Blossom Special" she made Mickey Mouse her new neighbor. There, in Central Florida, awaited her real-life prince charming Scott Hesler.

In 1986, after very nearly losing her lunch, she made her big debut on local radio. Surviving stage fright, the painfully shy, backward girl, then settled into a dream career in Christian radio. In 1993, she fell in love a second time with her tiny newborn prince, Scotty. She then followed her heart’s desire, studied art, and began painting.

The fairy tale came to a screeching halt when she became sick with a mystery illness. Her health deteriorated to the point where she was blind and bedridden. However, unbeknownst to her, God was working in her life. The solitude and forced isolation led to writing the first children’s book “Adventures in Rainbow City.” Through the miracles of modern medicine, her Lupus is now under control.

The addiction to riding that magic carpet into a dream world has taken hold. Now, she could not live one day without visiting a fantastic new place, containing the most exciting and sometimes admittedly quirky characters that exist anywhere. Happiness these days, is fantasizing about the next great imaginary adventure.
