Tamar Hela

Tamar Hela is a writer and editor from California. Since the age of ten, many of her teachers have encouraged her to pursue a career in writing fiction. She has always had a knack for words, loving the art of storytelling.

As a musician and artist, Tamar understands the importance of captivating an audience through various mediums, but especially loves using words to create visual images for readers. When she’s not writing, editing, drinking coffee, or traveling somewhere cool, she can be found curled up with a good book.

Spirit Lake, previously titled as Feast Island, is Tamar’s first published work of fiction in the Spirit Lake Series and her follow-up The Wrong Fairy Tale are both being published this year and will be available on eBook in April with the paperback versions to come out in June. She is also a published poet, and her poem, titled “Hope,” can be found in the anthology Live Life: The Daydreamer’s Journal. Daydreaming is what prompted her to start writing, and she encourages those around her to dream big, all the time.
