Tamara Geraeds (1981) was only six years old when she wrote her first poem. When she was fifteen, she started writing her first (children’s) book Achtervolgd door de Dood (Chased by Death), which she published herself in 2005.
For years she kept dreaming of a career as a writer and in 2011 that dream came true. Karakter Publishers published her short story 11 November in Bergen Bloedt (Bergen Bleeds), a collection of short summer thrillers.
The following year she landed a contract with the renowned Dutch children’s books publisher Kluitman, that published her début Nergens (Nowhere) in 2012.
Several Dutch children’s and YA books followed, with different publishers, and her first book for adults was published in 2017. In 2018 she also wrote her first English book, book 1 in the (now finished) series Cards of Death.
Since 2011 Tamara runs her own business, teaching English, Dutch and writing, and editing for several publishers. Recently her 20th book was presented.
Tamara loves to play with a mixture of fantasy and reality in her books. She also likes to make her readers think about worldly matters and therefore implements important messages into her stories. Her books are full of action and tension, and are written in a laid-back style. Easy to read, hard to forget.
