I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Central Washington University with a degree in film production, but my love of storytelling transitioned to the written word. Now, with the moral support of my pet rabbit sidekick, I write full time. But that’s the boring stuff. I’m a huge fangirling nerd of wonder. Life isn’t complete unless I’m obsessing over something and completely lost in another world.  And I must always, always be creating.

Art has always been a part of my life in many shapes and forms. There was the time I decided to make crochet amigurumi.


Then I painted D&D figures.





Then I drew super fancy Disney themed mandalas. Some of which I now have as tattoos.

I’ve dabbled in cosplay, watercolor (I’m so not a great painter),  sewing, and even GISHWHES (Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen, aka a huge creative mess of all the things!)

But in the end, my true passion is writing.




Well, writing and bunnies.

I left our time together thinking, “T. L. McNamee is going to go far.” I am truly excited.
