Hi, I’m Tara!

I’m happiest when I’m working with words: I’m a freelance writer and editor, novelist, newspaper columnist, and college journalism and English instructor. I’m always looking for a fresh and interesting project.

I’m a lifelong Idahoan who grew up in Laclede (a community of 300 people along the Pend Oreille River), and I now live in the college town of Moscow with my husband and two sons.

I spend my free time walking my dog, camping and hiking in the Pacific Northwest wilds with my family, and sampling as much ice cream as possible in every city I visit. (Ask me about my favorites!)
