About Us

 

The Unwanted Series

The Unwanted Series is a series of family-friendly, engaging stories with imperfect people dealing with events and characters that are "unwanted" at best. We purposely crafted our stories without foul language, graphic sex/violence and the occult so that everyone can enjoy reading about Sharon and Callie, our heroines.

On a side note, Sharon and Callie are loosely based on us, the authors. Between us, we are able to provide the experience and outlook of the mature generation and also capture the energy and perspective of our younger characters.

The Authors

Sandra Denbo

Sandra Denbo

Sandra Denbo has five children and eight grandchildren.  She’s had a wealth of experiences and has met a wide variety of personalities, each with their own idiosyncrasies.  This fertile bed is the source of ideas for creating the characters you will learn to love and hate.  Sandra has always had the ability to describe ideas and feelings clearly.
When her mother passed away a few years ago, she started a journal to record all of her experiences.  That led Sandra to record events around her own childhood.  That springboard awoke the writer within.

Sandra Denbo and her daughter, Tamarine Vilar, live in Portland, Oregon, which is the setting for their stories. Tamarine is the youngest of Sandra’s five children. Sandra has had a wealth of experiences and has met a wide variety of personalities, each with their own idiosyncrasies. This fertile bed is the source of ideas for creating the characters you will learn to love and hate. Sandra has always had the ability to clearly describe ideas and feelings.

Tamarine Vilar

Tamarine Vilar

Tamarine Vilar has one son and also lives in Portland. She has a Bachelor’s degree in English with a minor in writing from Portland State University. Because Sandra loved to read, she read to Tamarine from infancy. As a result, reading became Tamarine’s favorite way to relax. But she has more than just a passion for reading; she loves to write as well.  Professors and fellow students alike have enjoyed her writing and have encouraged her to continue her pursuit. She has the natural ability to evoke emotion, even tears, with her writing. Tamarine’s ultimate goal is to have a career in the book industry so she can help others with the same passion for reading and writing.

 

How We Started

In college, Tamarine received an assignment to write a short story in her writing class. She asked her mother to help with an idea. After turning in her assignment, they decided to play with the story and it turned into Unwanted Discovery. Although they did not intend to become published authors, they liked their characters so much that they decided to continue the series.It was almost likea self-driven machine that pulled them along until it was accomplished.
