About the Author
Storytelling has been a big part of my life ever since. As a small child, I often entertained myself by imagining exciting stories, even before I could write. Now, when I enter a story world and watch the characters act out an interesting or exciting tale, I write down what they do and share it.
But my stories don't fit the accepted genre rules. And since I have to tell what a story's genre is when I publish it, I pick one that seems closest. But, oh, how I wish the publishing venues had an option that would fit: Higgledy-Piggledy Genre.

Imagine that your life has been threatened, even before your birth, by some outside force trying to take over your existence. That is the premise for Tuggers Down by Tommie Lyn. From it¿s beginning with a Ouija Board session to its ending with a family in peril, this is a roller coaster ride of a book. I give this book five out of five stars. Tuggers Down, while an entertaining story, also has some very realistic scenes of demonic possession and the way demons think of the human race. This tale has the heartwarming tale of a young boy in trouble and the people drawn into his life. It takes us from Massachusetts to Florida, and along they way gives us a cast of very believable people. Are they perfect people? NO! But they all seemed very realistic to me. I have met people just like them all. I loved how real the ending was and how simple a true believer was allowed to deal with the demonic. I want to end this review saying if you don¿t believe in demonic possession or the supernatural then you probably won¿t like it. If you have trouble with people of faith who treat their relationship with Christ like a real relationship then you won't like the heroine of this tale. But if you are a Christian looking for a book that is as exciting as a Frank Perretti or Ted Dekker novel then this is the book for you. I just hope the author decides to write a sequel. If she does then I will be one of the first in line to get a copy. Let me end by saying this book was so good I bought two copies one for me and one to give to a friend.
This book was scary, thrilling and I couldn't turn the page fast enough. It also touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes for the plight of little 'Tugger'. The only thing that disappointed me was it ended! I highly recommend this book and feel as if I have stumbled upon a treasure because this author has more books.
If only Ouija boards didn't hold such a fascination over teenage girls. If only they knew what truly lurked beneath their sliding fingertips. They would think twice before summoning a power beyond their reckoning. A power with the ability to kill. In Tommie Lyn's Tugger's Down, Tiffani and Olivia awaken a demonic entity on their grandmother's Ouija board - it kills Olivia while attempting to infiltrate the baby in her womb. The baby, Tugger, survives to be constantly plagued by the demon who continually assaults the boy for control of his soul. At age three, Tugger is at the point of complete physical deterioration. His emotionally detached grandmother sends him along with his nanny to live with his Aunt Regina and her family in Florida. Escaping from the proximity of the demon's hold, Tugger begins to flourish in his new surroundings especially when he meets Lacey. Lacey is a struggling college student. Raised in a Christian group home, religious values are an essential part of her character. Now living on her own, she tries to make ends meet working at a jewelry kiosk in the mall. It's not until she meets fellow student Porter O'Brien (who happens to be Regina's brother-in-law) that she begins to let down her guard. One problem - Porter has a notorious past as a ladies man. When Lacey initially rebuffs his advances, he turns his attention to another classmate, Jennie. This proves to be a major error in Porter's calculations when his interest in Lacey turns into an undeniable attraction. Lacey finds herself falling for Porter when he takes a genuine interest in her - repairing her car, buying her lunch and driving her to work. However, Jennie sews seeds of distrust in Lacey's mind in regards to Porter's fidelity. Just when Lacey begins to rely on Porter, she doesn't know whether to pursue the relationship or withdraw before Porter can hurt her. In the meantime, the demon continues to pursue Tugger. When Tiffani and her sister, Heather, once again use the Ouija board, the demon takes over Heather's body and kills Tiffani. Traveling to Regina's home in Florida, a final showdown occurs when only Lacey and Porter stand between Tugger and the demon's wrath. Tommie Lyn is a master at creating realistic characters. Characters that readers care about. Her talent is apparent in fleshing out their personalities with believable details. Tugger's internal struggle with the demon is depicted by his nanny having to relax his clenched toes in order to put on his socks. Porter's issues with the harsh Navy discipline of his father illustrate the root cause behind his teenage rebellion. Lacey's abandonment by her mother taught her to push people away instead of allowing anyone to get close enough to hurt her. The emotional detachment of Tugger's grandmother derives from her familial connection to a woman convicted in the Salem witch trials. The characters are multi-dimensional with relationships that are imperfect yet real. Overall, this is a supernatural thriller with a whole lot of heart.
