Tammy Dewhirst was born and raised in Ypsilanti, Michigan—just outside of Ann Arbor. Educated in a church school and raised in a generally restrictive environment, Tammy’s mother was a strong believer in education and not limiting—within reason—the types of novels and literature available to her children. At an early age, Tammy developed an interest in biography and mystery that have lasted her a lifetime. She attended varied universities in Tennessee and Michigan eventually earning degrees in history, politics, literature and historical preservation. Tammy now works at a local telecommunications company and volunteers in the role of Chair for a branch of a provincial heritage non-profit .She lives with her husband and teenaged daughter in Amherstburg, Ontario.
David Vaughn Sr., Tammy’s father, is an occasional contributor to Rabid Reader’s Reviews. David was born and raised in Brunswick, Ohio. At a young age, he was sent to live with family in Cleveland, Ohio where he attended a grammar school geared toward visually impaired children. David returned to Brunswick for high school but eventually dropped out after 4 years in the 9th grade. He relocated to Ypsilanti, Michigan after marrying and spent his career working for General Motors in Ypsilanti and later Toledo, Ohio. David retired in 2005 and now lives in southern Tennessee with his wife of 51 years. David was diagnosed with dementia in 2018 and interaction in book discussion is now limited though he still reads a book per day on most days.
