Author Biography

Tamara Grantham was born and raised in Southeast Texas. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in English from Lamar University. After marrying her husband David, she followed him through his training to become a burn surgeon, which consisted of moving from Vidor, Texas to Galveston, Texas, then to Tulsa, Oklahoma, back to Galveston, and they finally settled in Wichita, Kansas. Tamara and David have five active, sweet, and almost always well-mannered children, ages zero to ten years. Their two pets, June—the Jack Russell Terrier, and Chester—a black cat, help to keep the house lively (in addition to the children.)

When Tamara isn’t writing or tending her children, she enjoys taking walks through the woods, eating chocolate, and very infrequently, she enjoys a good night’s sleep.

In Dreamthief, the first book in the Fairy World MD urban fantasy series by Tamara Grantham, visiting Faythander is a nasty business. Forget the fairies and unicorns, most people who visit return to the human realm with lost memories and mental problems. Olive Kennedy knows. Half elf, half human, she works as a therapist to treat patients suffering from Faythander's side effects. Despite her empty bank account, she takes pride in her job as Houston's only Fairy World medical doctor. She's never failed to cure a client — until now.

Traveling back to Faythander wasn't on Olive's to-do list. But when her godson suffers from a mysterious ailment and falls into a coma, she has no choice. The fate of both Earth and Fairy depends on her ability to stop an ancient being called the Dreamthief. To complicate matters, she may be losing her heart to someone who can't love her in return. Saving the world, she can handle. Falling in love — not so much. As if battling the forces of evil wasn't difficult enough...

Dreamthief by Tamara Grantham is a fast paced tale of urban fantasy. A clean read filled with humor, romance and a plucky heroine, Dreamthief hits all the right notes in the genre and never missteps. The characters are engaging with layers that may surprise the reader as the book progresses. The action and adventure are well done and there isn't a slow moment in Dreamthief. The romance has just the right amount of sweet and sizzle, and there's a mystery throughout that's guaranteed to keep you guessing. Grantham is prepared to make her mark in the urban fantasy scene with this one.

Get read for a story full of action, adventure, mystery, romance and magic. Olive is not your ordinary psychiatrist. She takes the unusual cases. She's a fairy psychiatrist. Half human, half fairy to be exact.

She is asked to take on her godson Jeremiah's case. Strange things are happening with him. He stays in a dreamlike state and he is slowly getting weaker and weaker. In her quest for answers, Olive must travel to the fairy kingdom where she was raised.

This was a fun read with a very interesting plot. One of my favorite characters, besides Olive, is Kull the Wult prince. He is snarky and cocky but really funny. Definitely a must read for anyone who enjoys magical stories.
