Tamara Mataya is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, a librarian, and a musician with synesthesia. Armed with a name tag and a thin veneer of credibility, she takes great delight in recommending books and shushing people. She puts the 'she' in TWSS and the B in LGBTQIA+. 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.

Pardon me for copying much of my last year's mentor post. It's pretty close to this year's.Who I am and why you want this Canadian to be your mentor.




My name is Tamara Mataya, though you probably know me as Feaky Snucker, as seen on The Internet. My Nan always said that self-praise is no recommendation, but this is a contest and knowledge is power.

Just when I think Jessalyn can't outdo herself, she pulls another great book out of her...Atlas. :D

I love a good rocker and Jessalyn delivered the angst, the steam, and the happy sighs. A vegas showgirl and a jaded rocker? I AM HERE FOR IT. Her flawe

“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.”
