Vampires of Portlandia:
"...a promising writer with lots of potential..." - Publishers Weekly
Jason Tanamor has 10 plus years of experience as an entertainment writer and interviewer for Yahoo!, the Moline Dispatch/Rock Island Argus, Cinema Blend, Celebrity Cafe, Strip Las Vegas Magazine, Pulse Magazine, and Zoiks! Online.
Tanamor has interviewed the likes of author Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club); comedians Demetri Martin, Jim Breuer (SNL, Half Baked), Aisha Tyler (Talk Soup, The Ghost Whisperer), Dane Cook, and Gabriel Iglesias; musicians Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins), Ann Wilson (Heart), Taylor Momsen (The Pretty Reckless and Gossip Girl), Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), and Henry Rollins (Black Flag); and baseball legend Pete Rose.
He has covered everyone from Steve Martin to Jerry Seinfeld and from Evanescence to President Obama.
With novels, Tanamor enjoys writing in different genres. He is the critically acclaimed author of the dark novels, "Anonymous" (which received a star review from Publishers Weekly) and "Drama Dolls"; the satirical novels, "Hello Fabulous!" and "She's the One?"; and the epic superhero themed children's book, "I Heart Superhero Kid". His newest novel, "Vampires of Portlandia," is an urban fantasy.
Tanamor is married and has a family of fur children. He currently lives and works in the Portland, Oregon area.
With an education in Mass Communication—and an engrossment in the curious and bewitching—Brianna Sugalski is a writer and Blog Director for The Parliament House Press. Previously, she was a staff contributor for Lifestyle & Fashion online magazine, Sarah Scoop, and also served as Copy Editor and Editor-In-Chief at her school publications. Her Dark Fantasy YA novel, DISENCHANTED, was recently acquired for publication, and is slated for release in March of 2020.
Brianna was born and raised on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, but now travels every few years with her husband and two children. She admires a few luminaries of the Victorian Era; the romanticism of period literature has inspired her to twine vibrant settings of nature with fast-paced narratives that readers will hopefully enjoy.
Ultimately, she aspires to make her readers laugh, to challenge their perspectives and to help them discover the magical meaning of their own powers within.
