Tammy’s in great company at No. 2 (The Immortals and Circle of Magic Quartets) narrating as the Full Cast Audio Family performs the characters’ dialogue (including Bruce Coville as Niklaren Goldeye and Tammy’s husband Tim as Dedicate Crane, among other roles!), with Neil Gaiman (Ocean at the End of the Lane) at No. 1 – and Jenny Lawson (Furiously Happy), the late Christopher Hitchens (Hitch-22), and Seamus Heaney’s translation of the Old English classic Beowulf also on the list.

Hello all! We’ve updated Tammy’s events page to reflect her schedules for Supanova’s Sydney and Perth events.
Both will be updated to reflect final signing times as soon as that information is available.
To answer a question that’s been going around, these will be Tammy’s only appearances in Australia this year. She would love to make it out to Melbourne, Brisbane, New Zealand, and all of the other suggested places that you guys have been begging for, but it’s just not possible with time and financial considerations. If you want to see her (at current or different locations), let Supanova’s staff know! Tammy loves Australia, and she’d love to come back.
We made it! Tammy and her husband Tim landed in Sydney, Australia at 6:20 AM local time to attend Australia’s Supanova Pop Culture Expo this Friday – Sunday.
On the plane with her, and also attending Supanova, was Dark Fantasy author Anne Bishop (The Black Jewels, The Courtyards of the Others books), gaming composer/musician Michael Patti (Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void, Legend of Legends), VO performer Sean Schemmel (Goku in the US version of the Dragon Ball universe, the Yu-Gi-Oh! universe) , and actor/musician James Marsters (Spike from Buffy, The Vampire Slayer and Angel).
Tammy will be appearing at the Barnes and Noble in Dewitt, NY, on Saturday, June 11th, as part of their B-Fest Teen Book Festival!
The appearance will involve a panel and a signing, both on Saturday afternoon. More details to come.
Books can be purchased the day of the event, but it’s recommended that interested parties call or pre-order to make sure the books they want to purchase are in stock. Fans can also bring their own books to be signed, of course! Please include a sticky note with the name of the individual to whom the books should be personalized. Limit of three personalized books per person.
Apparently Abigail Chandler of Bookbub‘s Blog thinks so! In her “Eight Books to Read Based on Your Favorite ‘Game of Thrones’ Character” post, she lists Song of the Lioness as the books fans of Lady Knight Brienne of Tarth should be reading….
