Tamara Erwin is the U.S. communications manager for a global company by day and a freelance writer by night. She’s lived in Nashville and Dallas and has written about lots of fascinating people — some are really well known but most are just everyday people who are doing extraordinary and inspirational things. She digs Southern food (shrimp & grits) and she grew up reading Southern writers (McCullers and Faulkner). Her all-time favorite place is New York City. Go figure.
