Tami Knight

Born on the edge of the wilderness in Vancouver, Canada, Tami Knight always knew she would be a mountaineer. From an early age, Knight's parents instilled in her a love of the outdoors, with family trips including skiing, boating, and hiking as steady fare. She also decided, at the age of 6, to be an artist. However, much of her childhood was dedicated to gymnastics. She might have continued in this vein had a car accident not put an end to it. With gymnastics out of the picture, Knight turned toward climbing to satisfy her restless spirit. Knight hung out at many of North America's famous crags, particularly at Camp 4 in Yosemite National Park. It was at Camp 4 that she began keeping a journal of the exploits of those around her. One day, instead of submitting the normal written climbing report to the Alpine Club's newsletter, she submitted a drawing. Knight's unusual means of reporting was embraced by the Alpine Club, and her cartooned reports became a regular part of the newsletter. It wasn't long before she self-published a collection of these drawings, which quickly sold out. She continued to publish cartoons in small magazines and newspapers. In 1989, Knight's cartoons came to the attention of Mike Jones, former Associate Publisher at Menasha Ridge Press. Six months pregnant with her first child, Tami agreed to "do a book." The book, Climbing Tales Of Terror, is still in circulation ten years later. All in all, Knight has published 6 books and has illustrated many more. Tami currently lives in Vancouver.
