Meet Tamar Hela
Tamar Hela is an editor, writer, and former English teacher from California. She lives and works in Shanghai as the “How-to Queen” 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. Check out Spirit Lake and its followup, The Wrong Fairy Tale, by clicking here. Her first non-fiction book, The Teen Reader’s Journal (available on Amazon), 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 skills for several companies in Silicon Valley, California and Shanghai, China, and has used some of her fictional pieces to teach English to ESL learners and native speakers alike.

Daydreaming is what prompted Tamar to start writing and she encourages those around her to dream big, all the time.
