Tomlinson has published 50 books since she started writing.[7] The Kids Defense Team provides children with disabilities and long-term illnesses toys and stuffed animals so that they can feel more comfortable during their trips to the physician.[8] Tomlinson currently lives in Cecil County Maryland with her husband.[9][10] She has a disability which keeps her from working a full time job. She passes her time mostly in writing books.

Writing Style[edit]

Tomlinson has published 50 books since she started writing.[11] Her books are aimed at teens and young adults. Her books tackle subjects like abusive relationships, homelessness and bullying. Most of Tomlinson's books are picture illustrated books. Recently she started writing longer books for readers who are teen. She also writes about children and family members coping with medical conditions. According to Tomlinson, her books are a way for children to better understand what they are experiencing.[12]

Personal life[edit]

Tomlinson studied photography at a college in Hawaii island. She was a freelance photographer and worked for a photo distribution place in Hawaii. She was a promo photographer for a local band there. Before turning to Hawaii, Tomlinson lived in California where she was a nanny for a child. She worked as an office manager for a psychologist before starting the Kids Defense Team. At present, Tomlinson lives in Cecil County Maryland with her husband.[13][14] Tomlinson has a disability which keeps her from working a full time job. She started the Kids Defense Team and the disabled volunteer campaign in 2003.[15][16] She has two grown children who live in other parts of the USA.

Illness[edit]

Tomlinson lives with intracranial hypertension, a disease that gives extreme pressure from spinal fluid around the brain resulting in headache. Tomlinson said about writing that it helps her push the pain away. In 2013, she was diagnosed with RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome), a nerve disorder that may affect a person's ability to move easily and in the middle of the night, the patient will feel a spasm in legs and be unable to sleep. Before her diagnosis, her hobby was outdoor photography. Tomlinson said that she is unable to move easily now, but she wanted to remain active somehow and writing books helps her do that.[17]
