Gnarled Bones and Other Stories is a short story collection that features five contemporary psychological fiction stories about characters who must cope with the loss, fear and guilt of their past to move forward. To find out more about the book and purchase a copy, you can do so here.

My name is Tam May and I’m a historical fiction writer, blogger, lover of literature, psychology, women’s issues, and classic films.

I write mainly historical fiction (though some of my work is contemporary) about characters who look to the past to discover their future. I’m currently working on a family saga set in the San Francisco Bay Area during the Gilded Age and I have a historical mystery series in the works that features a turn-of-the-century New Woman sleuth at odds with her more conservative community.

To find out more about me and the series I’m currently working on, please check out the “About” tab.

I also keep a blog called The Dream Book Blog where I offer psychological insights on history, mystery, and the arts.
