Tara Randel has enjoyed a life long love of books, so it
didn't come as a surprise when she pursued writing
herself. After finding Romantic Times magazine in a
bookstore nine years ago, she got the writing bug. Soon
after she discovered Romance Writers of America. She
located the RWA chapter and immediately attended her first
meeting. She's been an active member since then.
Tara completed four manuscripts before Avalon Books bought
Lasting Love, a December 2001 release. She has since sold
another manuscript, Hidden Hearts with an April 2002
release date. In between, she has sold short stories and
worked on script writing with a local Christian television
network. She also teaches creative writing to middle
school students at her daughter's school.
Through Tampa Area Romance Authors, Tara learned all about
the business, from the craft of writing to finding out
which publishers work in the romance genre. She also
served as contest coordinator for four years and served as
President for one year, and she has continued to write.
When not writing, Tara owns a business with her husband and
stays busy with her two daughters. She lives on the West
Coast of Florida, where gorgeous sunsets inspire the
creation of heartwarming stories.
