BWW Interview: Writer Jessica Tamara
by Mark C. Lloyd - May 24, 2016

Jessica Tamara is a rising author whose debut novel Running Away From Love was self-published and released on July 18, 2015. She has had a passion for writing and also reading since she was a little girl. She has been featured as a rising urban fiction author at the Toronto Urban Fiction Book Expo. Her goal is to create female characters from all walks of life that evolve, but most importantly they inspire and live in their truths whether it is good or bad. She would describe her writing style as emotional and vivid, where she wants you feel and escape into the moment she has created. You laugh with the characters, get angry with them, cry with them, and root for them to overcome. If the reader can relate and connect on any level, then that makes the writing process that much more worthwhile. Jessica currently resides in Buffalo, NY where works in finance and writes in her spare time. She is currently working on creating her own publishing company, which she hopes to help authors like herself to share their work with the world. She is currently working on her 2nd novel slated to be released in September 2016 titled 'Season's Change....Autumn Leaves'. (more...)

BWW Review: Seattle Public Theater's CAUGHT Examines Twisting Truth
by Jay Irwin - May 23, 2016

Seattle Public Theater's current production "Caught" by Christopher Chen walks a treacherous tightrope between truth and lies on multiple levels with a thoughtful and humorous show. And even as engaging as it was, ultimately it felt a little long winded and I question what its own truth really was. (more...)
