Snorts & Giggles
Tammy Blue
Southern Edition has the unique honor of publishing Tammy Blue's first professional article.  I was so impressed with Tammy's initial query that I looked forward to receiving her final work with much anticipation.  It was not until after we exchanged a few e-mails that I discovered that her interview with Dr. Colin Davis would be her first paid writing gig.  Tammy says, "I've written quite a few [articles] and plan to continue pursuing publication."  No doubt, readers of various other publications will discover her talents in the near future.

Prior to taking a more serious interest in writing, Tammy had traveled a different path.  "For ten years," she explains, "I pursued acting in Los Angeles, where I also trained exotic animals.  When that work started to dry up, I did project management in Boston for quite a few years, but always loved to write."  From Massachusetts, she relocated to Birmingham where she decided to go back to school and pursue an English degree at the University of Alabama.  "I was definitely not the typical student, going back at the age of 39, but it really made sense for me," she admits.  "I've always had a knack for writing, especially nonfiction.  So it's my hope to continue in that genre.  I love to tell people's stories."
