Stand Alone Books

Welcome to my website!

My name is Tam May and I’m a historical fiction and historical mystery writer. I’m also a lover of all things classic (literature, film, art) and I’m passionate about the nooks & crannies of history — the stuff you don’t read about in the history books.

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, which debuted at #1 in its category on Amazon.

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 explore social and psychological history and add extra goodies about my books like cover reveals, release blitzes, and excerpts. You can check it out at the tab labeled with that title above.

I also have a readers group on Facebook, which you can join by clicking here. Lots of interesting historical stuff there as well and you’ll get access to special live posts and book excerpts.
