About the Author
Tamara Dietrich was born in Germany and raised in Appalachia. She has bounced around in states as far-flung as Maryland, New Mexico, Maine, New York, Arizona and, now, Virginia. Along the way, she has become an award-winning newspaper journalist for her news reporting, feature writing and column writing. When she’s not spending every free moment working on novels, she’s cycling, hiking, jogging and gardening. Travel is a particular pleasure, although she doesn’t get nearly enough of it. She’s the mother of a 19-year-old son, and provides room and board and couch privileges to three cats and a dog. The Hummingbird’s Cage is her debut novel.
