Stand Alone Books

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 historical fiction about characters who examine their past, influenced by the time in which they live, to move on to the future. I’m currently working on a family saga set in the San Francisco Bay Area during the Gilded Age (1890s), 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. I also published a stand-alone book of historical women’s fiction short stories in March 2020.

To find out more about me and what 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. You can check it out at the tab labeled with that title above.
