Tamara Mataya is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, a librarian, and a musician with synesthesia. Armed with a name tag and a thin veneer of credibility, she takes great delight in recommending books and shushing people. She puts the 'she' in TWSS and the B in LGBTQIA+. She’s the co-creator of Pitchmas, a bi-annual pitch contest for writers, and as a freelance editor, has worked with NYT Bestselling authors.

Pardon me for copying much of my last year's mentor post. It's pretty close to this year's.Who I am and why you want this Canadian to be your mentor.




My name is Tamara Mataya, though you probably know me as Feaky Snucker, as seen on The Internet. My Nan always said that self-praise is no recommendation, but this is a contest and knowledge is power.

What I liked the best about this book was the way the author wove in some truly delightful descriptions. I'm typically pretty hard to please when it comes to books with necromancers, but this one didn't let me down. I'll definitely be picking up the ...more

Pharaoh by Wilbur Smith
" This was written like somebody prepared an outline and then filled in the blanks. Nowhere near what his previous works and meticulous eye for detail contained

River God and The Seventh Scroll were amazing this does not do the series justice

“The Cyrus-Swift Phenomenon. Taylor Swift has had, like, eighteen boyfriends, but everyone still thinks she’s really classy because she’s just so poised and sweet and appropriate-looking. Meanwhile, Miley Cyrus was with the same guy for practically forever, and people are always calling her a slut. And I’m not saying we should be calling T. Swift a slut instead—even if you do date a lot of guys, you don’t deserve that. What I’m saying is, when it comes to popular opinion, it’s all about the persona.”
Rachael Allen, The Revenge Playbook

“Look, choosing to wait until marriage makes me feel empowered. But if the same choice cripples you, then it wasn't the right one.”
