Tamara Mataya is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, a librarian, and a musician with synesthesia.

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.

Begging For Mercy by Tamara Mataya
"An enjoyable read with characters who I thought were likable. You have a little bit of underground racing, a bit of mischief as well as a touch of chemistry. I'm rating this at a 4 because I thought the story could've used just a bit more to move it " Read more of this review »

“You’re not supposed to want to date her. You’re supposed to be seducing her.”
Tamara Mataya, Begging For Mercy

“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.”
