It’s the name of the third book in my series. I could say more than that, but if I did… well, I’d have to… you know. Let’s just leave it there shall we?

Meet Tamie Dearen

Otherwise known by her Code Name: Fairy Teller

Fairy Teller:

If I could have one magical wish, I would have wings. I’ve dreamed of flying since I was a small child, jumping from roofs, trees, and various other tall structures with umbrellas, cardboard, and anything else I imagined would give me loft. Alas, I only experienced flight during my sleep, with dreams so real I almost believed they were true. So I am “Fairy Teller,” a storyteller with wings.

About the Author


Tamie Dearen lives with her very romantic husband of thirty-three years. She has two beautiful daughters, two amazing son-in-laws, and one awesome grandson. She plays piano, flute, harmonica, keyboards, and guitar, and loves composing and art. And she hates housework. She has been a dentist in private practice for thirty years. She stays busy playing on her church’s praise team and leading a weekly Bible study. In her spare time, she writes books.

Tamie met her husband as a freshman in college when she acted out of character on a whim. One night in the library lobby, she spied a cute guy with his first name written on the back of his shirt. She called out his name. When he approached to talk to her, she pretended that she’d met him before, asking about his classes and how he liked college. To her surprise and delight, he also pretended that he knew her, but of course he didn’t know her name. They continued this false relationship for two months. Each time they saw each other, an event that occurred three times per week at the cafeteria, he would pretend he knew her. Meanwhile, all of Tamie’s friends were careful not to reveal her name to him. When he finally admitted his ignorance of her name, he was astonished to learn the truth. And the rest is history.

Tamie Dearen’s Work

The Alora Series

The Alora Series is about a teen-aged girl in rural Montana who has been raised by her Uncle Charles and Aunt Lena. One day she begins to have visions of a boy with deep green eyes, but only when she’s in the shower. This seems a bit strange, but not scary… until the day he appears in person and then vanishes. As she attempts to solve the mystery, she questions her uncle, who confesses that they have not been honest about her origins. When she encounters the boy again, she learns she is from another realm and has powers of which she is unaware. Along with her friends, she transports to this new world, where she is fated to clash with an evil father who wants to use her gifts for his own selfish and violent purposes. This is complicated by the fact that she and the boy are soulmates—a rare situation, which enhances their gifts, but necessitates their continued close proximity in order to remain alive, making them even more vulnerable to her father’s attacks.

Who would love your books?

Fans of young adult fiction like Harry Potter and Hunger Games.

Where do your books fall on the Rating Scale of PG to PG-13 Content (1 = How To Train Your Dragon, 8 = The Dark Knight, 10 = Borderline-R-Rating).

I would put my books squarely in the middle at 5. There is no cursing, but there is some violence, though not described in a graphic way. Much like the violence in the later Harry Potter books, but nowhere near the level of Hunger Games.
