About this author

I've always loved reading and writing and all I ever wanted to be was an author. I've had four books published now, the fifth is written and is due to be published in August 2013 and I'm working on the sixth. I live with Kevin in the Mendips, not far from Bristol, a city that I love, and have three beautiful sons. We also have two dogs, Lil and Lola. The Love of My Life is my first book. It was longlisted for both the Romantic Novel of the Year Award and the Waverton Good Read Award. My second book, Missing You, won the RNA Readers' Choice Award, and my third, The Secrets Between Us was a 2012 Richard and Judy Summer Read. In Her Shadow will be published in paperback in the summer of 2013.

I'm waiting for her response and fingers crossed that she'll like it enough to give it the green light to go on to publication. I'm writing book seven, which is by far the most complicated book so far, but one that's very close to my heart. It's a love story, but a complex one. Will reveal more later. (less)

I enjoyed writing my first book, The Love of My Life the most because there was no pressure (didn't have publisher etc) and because it was a story close to my heart. The following five were not so easy, but the one I've just finished was a joy. I have no idea why it works like this :) Hope all's well with you x (less)

A week tomorrow it's the Romantic Novelists' Association awards lunch, by all accounts a fantastic do at a top London hotel and writers I've admired from afar for years will be there. It's my first proper literary event and I am excited and scared in equal amounts. The thing is, I don't really GO anywhere. I walk the dog in the Mendips and I go to work in Bristol. In between I shop, cook, clean... Read more of this blog post »

Tammy Cohen is brilliant as ever in this book. It's so well written and had me hooked from the first pages. This is darker than anything Tammy has done before. It's frightening, it's twisty, it's compulsive. An absolute must-read for anyone who's not ...more
