Tamara Kaye Sellman is a widely published writer living in Bainbridge Island, WA. Her most recent work has recently appeared, or is forthcoming, in Something On Our Minds, The Nervous Breakdown, Halfway Down the Stairs, Collective Unrest, and Crab Creek Review. Her work has been nominated twice for the Pushcart Prize. She works as a sleep health educator (see SleepyHeadCENTRAL.com), healthcare writer, and MS advocate/columnist when she’s not crafting creative prose.
“Sideways” details the adventures of living with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis. She was diagnosed at age 47 in May 2013, but suspects her MS-specific symptoms in 1975 actually mark its initial onset. Yes, it’s all in her head, but unless the vertigo is severe, she is at her humanly possible best while sitting behind a keyboard and monitor, using large fonts.
