Tamara Jones is also known as Tambo Jones and Tamara Siler Jones.

Tamara started her academic career as a science geek, earned a degree in art, and, when she's not making quilts or herding cats, writes tense thrillers as Tamara Jones and the award-winning Dubric Byerly Mysteries series (Bantam Spectra), as Tamara Siler Jones. Despite the violent nature of her work, Tam's easygoing and friendly. Not sick or twisted at all. Honest.

I woke up and saw a man standing in the bathroom doorway. I remained silent and started to reach for my husband but froze, terrified, when the man walked into our room, to the foot of the bed, past the window (where he was silhouetted against the light from the neighbor's back door) then he continued on into our closet.

Right then, my hubby sat up and whispered to me, "Someone just walked into the closet."

He crept out of bed and flicked on the closet light.

No one was there. There was nothing but our clothes and stuff.

We both saw the ghost and it freaked us out.(less)

Let's say, for example, there was a terrible car accident in a residential neighborhood and the driver was brutally maimed and killed in the collision. If I (and therefore the reader) investigate the scene with a seasoned police officer who's scraped countless people off of the pavement, it's is a lot less horrific and more detatched than if it's the same collision only it's the kid who lives in the house by the road who sees the bodies first.

Do I want more tension or horror, or do I want to soften the blow? Who the reader's seeing the event through makes a big difference on how the scene's perceived. :)(less)
