Meet Tammi Sauer, Author of Chicken Dance Book

Meet Tammie Sauer, the Author of Chicken Dance


I spent most of my first eighteen years on a farm outside the small town of Victoria, Kansas (population: 1,208). My roles included gathering the eggs when the city cousins visited and wanted to engage in novelty farm-like activities, chasing pigs back to their respective pens when they tried to make a break for it (I did this once while wearing my eighth grade cheerleading uniform—don’t ask), and swindling my younger sister and brother out of their money.

I graduated from Kansas State University with a B.S. in Elementary Education and married my high school sweetheart, Ron Sauer. We did not return to Victoria, causing the town’s population to plummet to 1,206. Ron and I have a daughter, Julia, and a son, Mason.

I loved being a teacher and library media specialist, but I am currently a full-time picture book author. I have visited hundreds of schools and spoken at various conferences across the nation. I even gave presentations at Disney World! Woo-woo!

Writing is one of my absolute favorite things to do, but I also love to read, ski, spend time with my family and friends, go to movies, and eat out as often as possible. What is more, I am hopelessly addicted to checking my e-mail.

My family and I live in Edmond, Oklahoma, with one dog, two geckos, and a tank full of random fish.
