After an American Studies degree at Manchester University, she went on to become a freelance journalist and has written for†The Times, The Telegraph, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan†and numerous other publications. Tamar, her partner and three teenage children live in north London with Spanish rescue dog, Toffee.†The Mistressís Revenge, Tamarís debut novel, was published in June 2011 and her second novel†The War of the Wiveshas just been released in the UK and will be released in Australia in September.

 
Tamar selected Tideline by Penny Hancock

Iíve just finished reading this richly atmospheric, evocative novel, set in South East London on the banks of the Thames at Greenwich. Itís a claustrophobic thriller in which the river itself becomes the most important character Ė dark, dangerous, beguiling and murky with secrets.
