Tamara Barak Aparton is an adrenaline junkie and nothing gets her motor running like extreme sports, particularly BASE jumping.

Just kidding! She enjoys perching atop barstools expectantly, eating burritos in Dolores Park, slovenly all-day cuddle-fests with her old man and her hound, and watching confrontation from a safe distance.

She’s been a newspaper and wire service reporter, cigarette girl, all-night diner waitress, and public relations lady. She has written extensively about crime, San Francisco politics, public transit, weird trends, and local characters.
