Simply Tam

SIMPLY TAM or Tamecia "Dianna" McDowell; an Author of Poetry, Urban Romantic Fiction, and Non-fiction. I am one of very few authors to release three works in different genres and, according to the Library of Congress and Wikipedia, the only KNOWN author to release these books simultaneously! I am also a Spoken Word poetry recording artist, live performer, event emcee and motivational speaker, as well as the co-creator/host of The Artists' Den at Cavalry Hill which is a monthly Open Mic, (look for us on facebook) AND I'm the founder of Hearts Needing Intimate Connections, a venue by which we as men and women can empower ourselves in relationships. Also, check out my weekly HIT BlogTalkRadio broadcast: Mic Nice!

Furthermore, I'm one of the founding participants of "I Am___", a group of local artists and entrepreneurs establishing a network by which we may assist one another in reaching our goals individually and collectively, as well as using our talents and resources for community outreach. My mission is to share the talents, gifts, and experiences with which Spirit has blessed me, for all who seek to find solid answers to some of life's challenges (including myself) and those who want to expand your thinking, knowledge, and love for the arts through poetry, my gripping fictional novellas, other published works and community events.

About me: I was born in Birmingham, Alabama to a schizophrenic mother and absentee father. I discovered my love of poetry at the early age of twelve. A product of the foster care system, I endured and conquered many obstacles and personal challenges to pursue writing full-time. Now, as the mother of two adult sons, I am proud to say that I am in a place of triumph and peace as I navigate my writing career and personal life. Want to know what I'm thinking on a regular basis? Me too, LOL! Subscribe to my BLOG at
