Meet Tamar Hela
Tamar Hela is an editor, writer, and former English teacher from California. She lives and works in Shanghai as the “Queen of How-to” at Sticky Steps, writing and editing digital education products for young professionals. She has always had a knack for words, loving the art of storytelling and creating new worlds for readers. When she’s not writing, drinking coffee, or traveling to someplace cool, she can be found curled up with a good book.
The Spirit Lake Series, Tamar’s debut Young Adult/Science-Fiction/Fantasy series, was acquired by Cosby Media Productions in 2015. Spirit Lake and its followup, The Wrong Fairy Tale, were available on Amazon, but in 2017, she decided to go a different route with her writing career and has pulled this project from the shelves…for now.
Her first non-fiction book, The Teen Reader’s Journal (available on Amazon), IS available, however. It even hit #1 Hot New Release in December 2015.
Additionally, Tamar’s poem, “Hope,” is published in the anthology Live Life: The Daydreamer’s Journal.
Tamar previously wrote for Examiner.com as the San Jose Healthy Living expert. She has employed her writing and editing skills for several companies in Silicon Valley, California and Shanghai, China.
Tamar is a freelance writer and editor, and writing coach. If you’d like to hire her, click HERE to send her an email. As the previous Publishing Director and Chief Editor for the Print Division at Cosby Media Productions, she has worked with Amazon best-selling authors like Mike Clemons and CF Waller. Since 2012, she has edited over 40 books in her career.
Daydreaming is what prompted Tamar to start writing, and she encourages those around her to dream big, all the time.
