breaking barriers to happiness & success


Hi! I'm Tammie,

an indie author based in West Los Angeles


One part academic, one part tutu and tights, I am author of If the Crown Fits trilogy and a transformational change advocate for individuals interested in breaking personal barriers to happiness and success. I provide actionable items to use in busting through ineffective patterns and turning limited thinking into an attitude of abundance.


The Books

I recently released my novella memoir trilogy—If the Crown Fits, Cinderella Beginnings, and My Kingdom for a Prince—as well as my debut fiction piece, The Laundromat Ladies. Read me, y’all, and throw a little love up on Amazon and GoodReads with reviews. I super appreciate it. (You can click that link down there, but nothing will happen. As of now, the books are only available on Amazon. So check them out! I hope you’ll be glad you did.)

There’s nothing here, and I’m not sure what I’m going to put here. Stay tuned while my brain throws a few things around.

My Story

In the fall of 2017, I sold everything I had, packed up my Prius, and drove across country to my new home. I had no friends there, no family, and no job. I followed a dream. It was one of the best decisions of my life. (Ivory thought so, too.)


“Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me….Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”

— Shel Silverstein
