Who Am I?

Many moons ago I was a scientist in a neuroscience lab where I got to play with brains and illegal drugs. Now, I’m an award-winning author who turns wickedly strong tea into imaginative fiction (so, basically still playing with brains and drugs).

My fascination for myths, history, and how they interweave inspired my flagship series, The Osteria Chronicles, as well as my second series, Domna,.

April’s Writing Round-up (with Video!)


Hello Bloglandia!


Well, April was….a month. I’m not sure how it went for you, but mine was a roller coaster of amazing highs (not the substance-induced kind), weird moments, and the lowest of lows.


I cover all this in my writing update video below (yep, more video!), but if you want the less rambling version (or simply can’t bear to watch my ugly mug…I don’t blame you), here’s a semi-quick s

An intriguing premise and started out good but there seemed to be no true main character and I found I didn't care about the story because of that.

Another pretty decent installment in the series. I liked this better than some of the past few books. The solution to the mystery was pretty obvious, but everything happening in town was a treat to read. Except for Polly, Qwill's lady friend. She jus ...more

“Personally, I thought it chancy to rely on only one god. It struck me as akin to placing all your drachars on one chariot at the races...It didn't seem logical that one god could ensure the proper working of the world.”
Tammie Painter, Domna, Part One: The Sun God's Daughter

“...now that I was beside him, I realized the folly in believing lust and desire for this man would stay outside the door like an obedient dog waiting to be
called in.”
Tammie Painter, Domna, Part Two: The Solon's Son (Domna

“Even after a lifetime of being near oracles, I found their predictions annoyingly vague.”
Tammie Painter, Domna, Part One: The Sun God's Daughter

“[The Solon]...was a showman, a braggart, and this appealed to certain people who saw only the bravado and not where this irresponsibility might take Osteria.”
Tammie Painter, Domna, Part One: The Sun God's Daughter

“Even after a lifetime of being near oracles, I found their predictions annoyingly vague.”
Tammie Painter, Domna, Part One: The Sun God's Daughter

“Nothing good can come from trying to guess the gods' minds.”
Tammie Painter, Domna, Part One: The Sun God's Daughter

“Sirius looked about as intelligent as the temple cats who liked to chase their own tails.”
Tammie Painter, Domna, Part One: The Sun God's Daughter

“Sirius had the relaxed, confident demeanor Seatticans were known for...and an overall likable disposition. If you weren't being forced to marry him, that is.”
