Hello! I’m Tammy Strobel.

I’m an author, photographer, teacher, and cat lover. I've been sharing my creative work online since 2007.

Here are a few fun facts about my work:

  • From 2007-2021, I wrote a popular blog and newsletter called RowdyKittens. I archived RowdyKittens and moved to Substack in 2022. Read more.

  • My first book, You Can Buy Happiness and It's Cheap, was released in 2012. Since then, I've independently published three books about writing and photography.

  • I've developed and taught online classes about writing and photography.

Want to learn more about my work and education? Read my LinkedIn profile. Also, my books and photography are good place to begin.
