On Sunday, November 16th from 12-2pm, join Left Coast Writers® Live on FCCFREE RADIO’s popular show, Lilycat on Stuff. Lilycat’s guest on Sunday will be Left Coast Writer® Tami Casias. Tami graduated San Jose State University with a degree in Journalism and worked for years covering local and business news before making the decision to devote her writing time to fiction. Her first novel, a young adult titled Crystal Bound, is about a sixteen-year-old girl who inherits powers that compel her to help others. In Tami’s latest novel, My Affair with Mickey, Mini discovers her husband Michael is cheating minutes before winning the largest prize in the history of Disneyland. She has a three-day stay in the Castle to decide what to do with her life before Michael’s return. This is a fun and endearing story about a woman who has never finished anything in her life. But the qualities she didn’t know she had including resourcefulness, kindness and a love of adventure are brought to light when combined with her childhood memories of the park.

But when she inherits powers that compel her to help others, she is forced out of both her comfort zone and her sense of reality. As she tries to fade into the background, the powers force her to deal with serious issues that threaten to shatter her dreams. Tami Casias wrote local news for years while raising four children. Nowadays, writing fiction for young adults while sitting in coffee shops has taken the place of city council meetings. She uses her degree in Journalism to research new ideas for stories. Tami lives with her husband, teenage son, and Yorkshire terrier, Bruiser, in Sonoma, California.
