Author Interview

Meet Tamara Leigh

Our adventure takes us to Tamara Leigh’s residence in the Tennessee country where she resides with her husband, David, and their two sons.

Ms. Leigh invites us to her favorite spot and encourages us to feel right at home. Her back porch overlooks a gorgeous waterfall and acres of greenery, a beautiful setting to chat.

Bugging God

My family moves from house to house. A lot. On purpose.
