About Tamara Schmitz
Author and illustrator Tamara Schmitz grew up one of six children in the small town of Carey, Ohio. She graduated from the Columbus College of Art and Design, and spent several years as an art director in advertising and teaching art. She has illustrated hundreds of greeting cards, and several children's books including the popular Mallory series. (Carolrhoda) Tamara is an SCBWI member and Mazza Enthusiast.
"Children's books can be a powerful tool in delivering positive messages, especially when the child is simply drawn to it! I am humbled by my part in it."
Sitting at her desk for too many hours, however, drives Tamara crazy. So in her free time she works on getting her third degree black belt in Taekwondo. She resides in Cincinnati with her blended family.
