About Tamika Brown
I'm from a small town, but we have big dreams. I was born in the 70's but am truly the epitome of an 80's baby! My parents instilled in me to work hard; you can go as far as you want to with a good education. My parents ingrained this in me and because of that, I strive to be the best in whatever I do. I am an educator, but first and foremost, I am a wife and a mother of three. I take pride in what my children and husband have accomplished and strive to be a positive role model and inspiration to my children to be the best and that hard work pays off.
I am an avid reader and naturally my love for reading spilled out into writing.
Then came the challenge from my students to write a short story when we were studying pirates in North Carolina history. I took up the challenge and discovered that I could write!!! Whenever I get the chance, I put pen to paper and let all of the characters and plots that tumble around in my head come on out!!

My voyage to the United States came many years later once Nadeem was murdered. I saw the changes the U.S. went through year after year as I traveled from coast to coast eventually settling in a secluded area, away from civilization in the Northwest. There in the most unusual place I met the most extraordinary woman named Marin—a wolf shifter. She was my mate, and our bond was true, until it wasn’t. Falling into despair and wasting away, the relationship between wolves and vampires crumbled.
With help from Marin, I once again lived up to my title–the Ancient One, devising a plan to open communications between wolves and vampires. But I wasn’t ready for the power or the pleasure awaiting me within the Portland Coven thus losing myself in the process. Marin rescued me once again and I set out to raise an army aligning myself with Marin’s new mate.
Can the two of us put love in the past for the sake of the future or will the hurt between us ensure our end?
I am Malarick, Councilman and vampire representative on the Council of Immortals, King Malarick of the Coven Nadeem, and the Ancient One.
