Tamara Harpster was born December 5, 1962, which is also Walt Disney’s birthday and the day Mozart died, two facts she has been trying to reconcile ever since she found them out. Her childhood was spent in various cities in the Midwest as her family moved around for her father’s job. After graduating from Oklahoma State University she got her first job and met her husband to be on her first project. After a year they married and are still together some 30 years later. In that time she has been a software engineer, motel owner/manager, web developer, project manager and is currently part owner of another small business. In her spare time she works with her husband John to polish his novels, and do her own writing for blog entries and essays. ...more

I am gradually finding a balance, but I definitely have dry spells until I finally force myself to write anything just to get started again. Once I get started and find a rhythm it is easier to keep going.(less)

I usually have an end point for the story but not the path on how to get there. I follow my characters and fill in situations that nudge them towards the goal but I do get surprised at what happens that fits the story.(less)

I had meant to write about writing, but I have been thinking about the election this week. With the recent election cycle, I have been thinking about things I’d like to see in the future. While it is easy to focus on the political parties as the cause of all of the problems, I wanted to look a little deeper. Here are a couple of things I would like to see change.

I just finished this book and enjoyed this retelling of "Pride and Prejudice". Zuri's voice provides a narration of her world and her pride in being herself. It was refreshing to read of a heroine who is confident in herself, her family and her neigh ...more

Socrates
“The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.”
Socrates

“I am different, not less.”
