Welcome to my website!

I’m Tam May and write historical cozy mysteries set in the past. I’m a lover of all things classic: literature, film, art, music. I’m very passionate about women’s history and true crimes from the past too.

So if you’re looking for mysteries involving sassy sleuths and intricate mysteries where justice is always served to take you away from the stress of daily life, you’ve come to the right place!

And you’re here at the right time! This year, I’m launching the Adele Gossling Mysteries set at the turn of the century and featuring an independent, progressive stationery store owner who helps a small-town police department solve crimes on the side. The first three books are up for preorder now at special preorder prices, so don’t forget to check out the Books menu above. To find out more about me, please check out the About tab. 

And you’ll definitely want to sign up for my newsletter to receive my free book, The Missing Ruby Necklace, plus news about upcoming releases, fun facts about women’s history, classic true-crime tidbits, and more!

I hope you enjoy your journey into the past on my site!
