Tamara Colchester is a writer and forager interested in the paths between the symbiotic worlds of plants, animals and the separated human. She is currently pondering the usefulness of writing as a mode of exploring engagement with other living beings, and is more than a little concerned that it is always going to be a method at war with the content. She hopes not, and is spending as much time as possible away from the computer to follow animal, mushroom and plant trails, seeing where they take her.

She has co-written a film called Tawai – A Voice from the Forest, that explores the wisdom still held in the rapidly declining old-growth forests of the world. Her first book explored the ancestral patterns within her family system, and her second is set in Scotland and explores the dynamics between predator and prey, and the paradoxical idea that hunters are those who love animals the most.
