About the Author & Book

My name is Tami Wyrick, and I️ love getting lost in make-believe with my two boys. Our couch has sailed the ocean of our living room as a pirate ship, taken us to outer space and has been safety from hot lava. Our dogs have been monsters and dragons. As much as I️ love playing with my kids, there is something magical about seeing a child lost in play. Hearing my kids giggle with their toys as they create their own world is one of my favorite things to witness. I️ love to spark my children’s imagination, and I have even more fun when they spark mine.

Every weekend, my husband and I️ load up our two boys along with our chocolate labradoodle, Charlie, and head to a donut shop. We love donuts. One morning while enjoying a leftover donut from our weekend adventure, I️ looked over at the chair next to me and spotted one of my son's t-rex toys sitting next to me on a chair at my table. With my baby on my lap and my toddler running off his sugar high, I️ opened my notes app and started writing my story. As I️ looked at my son's dinosaur, I️ thought how fun and different it would be to see the toy at my table through the eyes of a child. Quickly, my story came to life.

I am a wife, mother, and writer. Dinosaurs Love Donuts is my first book that not only feeds children’s imagination, but it also feeds the hungry. A portion of all the book sales go to No Kid Hungry, an organization devoted to fighting childhood hunger.
