Tempany: I came out to LA with an amazing acting teacher who I adore. I've always been big on constant training to get rid of nasty habits that are easy to pick up when you work on TV.
Tempany: I'm writing for a series published by Macmillan/Laguna Bay called Kids Inc. The books are all about cutting edge teenagers who start up their own companies. I also wrote for the fabulous non-fiction series X-Zone, which is a cool fact-finding resource for kids. Would you believe I wrote a book on bats, sleeping and animal communication?
