About the Author
Hey, how's it going? I'm Tamara Hecht. I write the Monsterville books.
My passion for monsters runs deep. I love it all; monster movies, monster mythology, and monster art. To me, monsters are special because they're expressions of our most human traits, and yet, at the same time, more extraordinary than any real person could be. That's why I love writing stories about them.
I also love reading. If you scroll down, you'll see a list of recommendations.
