Bookmonger: ‘Intention Tremor’

April 7, 2021: By Barbara McMichael  (Bookmonger) for Coast Weekend: “She speaks to every single one of us in the poem titled “Quarantine.” As someone who is immunocompromised, she practices the necessity of self-quarantining through flu season every year. This poem was written pre-pandemic but Sellman’s acerbic observations about people who eschew science, citing freedom of choice, will ring true for many more of us now.”

Book Review of “Intention Tremor” by TK Sellman

March 16, 2021: By Kim Dolce for “Tamara Kaye Sellman awake-dreams her life with MS in this hybrid collection, showing us her brain and mind stuff in forms that defy labels. As a writer myself, laying out narratives helps me clarify what I think and feel. As a reader, I gained a richer sense of how I feel my MS by reading how Sellman feels hers.”


March 16, 2021: By Gretchen Gales for “Tamara Kaye Sellman is an author, advocate, and curator of sleep-wellness content. But that just scratches the surface of everything Sellman has accomplished in her life. Her new book Intention Tremor chronicles five years of her experience with multiple sclerosis (MS) with both poetry and nonfiction. Besides releasing a book during a pandemic, Sellman kindly chatted with me about art, advocacy, and everything in between.”

In her words, ‘I love the play on words and multiple meanings it implies.’ “
