Maylil Headshots -0034.jpg


May Tomlin was born in Brooklyn, New York to Norwegian parents. When the family returned to Norway she grew up in the country's southernmost town near the seashore. From a young age she not only devoured literature but scribbled stories. After making her home in Africa and central Europe she is now based in Franklin, Tennessee. 

A keen observer of human nature, she writes stories that blend the many cultures she has lived in. Because she is also driven by a passion for people to discover their true identity as part of God's creation she touches on childhood hurts and the lies that get embedded into our psyche.  The female protagonist in her stories always undertakes a journey from being stuck to overcoming obstacles and transitioning into redemption. Although the fiction is clean and wholesome she adds a sprinkling of humor and excitement to invite the reader into an adventure.
