A mother of six finds her creative stride despite the circumstances.
Tamyara Brown admits that her journey was not easy. Raising a family of six, surviving breast cancer, and facing homelessness were just a few of the challenges that she had to overcome. While caring for her son, who suffers from Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis – a rare kidney disease – Brown makes time to fulfill her purpose.
The author has completed three novels but began her career writing poetry, short stories, and blogs. Her debut novel, Blue’s Treasure, is currently available for purchase at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. She is set to release her latest novel, Fat Girl Vigilante, in October 2016.
