Tambra Kay Petri says she's "a "PK" (preacher's kid) and proud of it! "I grew up loving music and the theater, loving to perform, and loving to write. I served as church pianist all through high school and as pianist for a promotional traveling group in college. My career goals were in business. However, since marrying and the birth of our three children, the Lord has directed me to use my natural talents, which are in music and writing," says Tambra.
Tambra has taught music and worked with teens in drama as well as served in a variety of capacities in her church in Fresno, California. There she's directed several Broadway-style musicals and established a drama troupe to perform sermon starters (many of them written by her) on a bi-monthly basis.
In 1992, she wrote her first full-length comedy Christmas play for her church, which she also directed. The play was such a success that she continued writing from that time on. She currently has six plays with Eldridge Publishing Company.
