Author Biography

Neither Brenda nor Tami grew up writing stories or dreaming of one day being authors but that changed when they shared a joint dream of creating a world to bring to life the stories of a group of dangerously handsome supernaturals.

Brenda is a Southern California girl who grew up in a chaotic house with ten siblings. Her mother is a brave, courageous woman who has successfully battled advanced stage breast cancer for two years. Brenda inherited that drive and believes with perseverance she can accomplish whatever she sets her mind to. Whether that was completing her bachelors and Masters degrees, or writing books, she is always up for a challenge.

Brenda survived the brutal murder of her first husband, John DeCaprio, at the hands of the children he was counseling to go on and help children in similar situations. Brenda remarried years later and now lives with her husband and their three fun-loving, energetic children. She loves running, reading, cooking, and Monster Energy drinks. And, Tami's margaritas!

Tami is a southern girl, born and raised in Georgia. She is married and has two boys, so needless to say, she is surrounded by testosterone. We are trying to bottle Tami's strength and positive outlook on life. It has helped her beat breast cancer and she is a proud three-year survivor. She loves reading paranormal romances, running at the lake near her home, watching college football (Go Dawgs!!!), and is always in search of the next best margarita.

Reviewed by Tracy Slowiak for Readers' Favorite

In a great new read from writing duo Brenda Trim and Tami Julka, Deviant Warrior, the third book in the Dark Warrior Alliance series, readers will be treated to an absolutely fantastic entry into the category of paranormal fiction. Follow the story of Kyran Tarakesh, who is one of the most difficult of all of the deviant warriors. He saw his mother brutally raped and murdered when he was only seven years old, and that formative experience has warped him from that time. He's second in line to the vampire throne, but is close to losing his position due to his accidental killing of one of his lovers. When vampire hunter Mackendra comes into contact with Kyran, neither of them expected to have feelings other than hatred for the other. But when their feelings change from hate to love, will their extreme differences and Kyran's difficult past be too much for them to overcome? You'll have to read the book to find out!

I very much enjoyed Deviant Warrior. This book was a real page turner and was hot, hot, hot! Authors Brenda Trim and Tami Julka have done a great job in creating characters that their readers will be able to connect with, even in such a wild and fantasy-laden story, not always an easy task with such a read. Any reader who loves a great fantasy story with plenty of steamy scenes should absolutely read Deviant Warrior. I highly recommend this book, and look forward to reading more from authors Brenda Trim and Tami Julka in the very near future!
