Featured Reader: Tammy Kaehler
Before trying her hand at fiction, Tammy established a career writing marketing materials, feature articles, executive speeches, and technical documentation. A fateful stint in corporate hospitality introduced her to the racing world, which inspired the first Kate Reilly racing mystery. Tammy works as a technical writer in the Los Angeles area, where she lives with her husband and many cars. Tammy will be reading from her latest Kate Reilly release, Red Flags.
