TM Toombs states that her major accomplishments in life include getting out of bed and remembering to rinse the conditioner out of her hair. She is currently living in the oilfields of North Dakota with her hardworking husband who wishes she'd hurry up and get her writing career off the ground so he can retire and spend his days fishing. TM is the mom to a very active, non-verbal son facing the challenges of living on the Autism Spectrum.

The Reluctant Emissary is her first foray into the world of novel writing. She hopes that you enjoy it and looks forward to interacting with her readers at TMToombs.com.

That took an email to my developmental editor to see what she suggested. I adore her.(less)
