Tamar Myers


USA flag (b.1948)

Tamar Myers was born and raised in the Belgian Congo (now just the Congo). Her parents were missionaries to a tribe which, at that time, were known as headhunters and used human skulls for drinking cups. Hers was the first white family ever to peacefully coexist with the tribe, and Tamar grew up fluent in the local trade language. Because of her pale blue eyes, Tamars nickname was Ugly Eyes.

Tamar grew up eating elephant, hippopotamus and even monkey. She attended a boarding school that was two days away by truck, and sometimes it was necessary to wade through crocodile infested waters to reach it. Other dangers she encountered as a child were cobras, deadly green mambas, and the voracious armies of driver ants that ate every animal (and human) that didn't get out of their way.

The Last Word (2024)
(Deadly Deadlines Mystery, book 1)
Gerri Lewis
"The Last Word by Gerri Lewis was a joy to read. Its obituary-writing sleuth is refreshingly original. The author's smooth prose brought to life the Connecticut town in which the book is set, and moved the mystery along beautifully. I look forward to reading more books in this delightful series."

City of Lies (2017)
(Counterfeit Lady, book 1)
Victoria Thompson
"Victoria Thompson SHINES…Anne Perry and Caleb Carr fans, rejoice!"

The House That Went Down With The Ship (2013)
(Delmarva Renovators Mystery, book 1)
David Healey
"This book jazzes up old house lore with a fresh coat of small-town history and mystery."
