Tara started writing for fun in fourth grade. Her first work was a poem about dolphins. She wrote for her high school and college newspapers, but chose a different career path. After joining a group of friends for a weekly "Poetry Night" at a local restaurant, she rediscovered her love of writing.
Now, she has finally decided to take her passion for story-telling seriously and she intends to enjoy the journey, no matter how the road may wind.
Tara participated in the Collaborative Writing Challenge's fifth project, The Map. She loved the experience so much that she jumped at the chance to become the story-coordinator for their sixth project, Esyld's Awakening. She loves reading the work of so many talented writers from around the world and watching the story grow.
Tara is happily married with two human children, three dogs, and a cat. Born and raised in Montana, she has also lived in the Pittsburgh area of Pennsylvania, and currently resides in North Dakota.
