I was going to write some boring third person bio, like “Tara was born, and then she did some things.” But I think first person is more interesting, so here’s the truth: I was raised faraway in the Alaskan wilderness. The final sentence of a psych eval of eight year old me says, “Tara is headed for a lifetime of trouble. I decided to have a lifetime of adventures instead, like stripping all over the country and living in a van. I believe in standing up to live before sitting down to write.
