About this author

Tara Taylor Quinn began her love affair with Harlequin when she was fourteen years old and picked up a free promotional copy of a Harlequin Romance in a hometown grocery store. The relationship was solidified the year she was suspended from her high school typing class for hiding a Harlequin Romance behind the keys of her electric typewriter. Unaware that her instructor loomed close by, Ms. Quinn read blissfully on with one finger resting on the automatic repeating period key. She finished the book in the principal’s office. Forced to leave her romances in her locker after that, Ms. Quinn’s typing skills improved - a fact for which she is eternally grateful.

With over 50 original novels, published in more than twenty languages, Tara Taylor Q...more

I know that when the words aren't flowing, I have to get out of my own way. If I can't write it's because I'm allowing something else to take control of my mind. I ask myself if I really want to write that day, and if the answer is yes, I sit down and start to type. The words that come first might be garbage, but they open the door to that place where my writer voice exists.

If I ask the question and find that I don't really want to write that day, but I have to because I am on deadline, I try to get to a relaxed place. Heat usually does it for me and since I live in the desert, I most often just have to go outside and sit by my fountain for a while and let the sun wash over me.

If I ask the question and the answer is no, and it's really from the heart, I give myself the day off.

I also recognize that there are times when I am writing, working, but not ready to put words to the page. On those days I allow myself to think, to focus, on whatever comes to mind, but I don't force myself to type.(less)
Tara Taylor Quinn Self-fulfillment. I am a writer. When I write I reach a state of self-actualization that brings a beautiful peace.

I saw my life in the balance this week. I was in a truck. On the side of a mountain. The drop off was a couple of thousand feet. There were inches between our vehicle and the drop-off. No guard rail. No wall. Just...inches. The road was washboard dirt - and loose sand. And one lane. With occasional vehicles in both directions. It was steep up followed by a hairpin turn and steep down followed b... Read more of this blog post »

“I'm too intense. I feel too much. And when I experience certain sensations, I act. Even if the situation is one I should probably walk away from. But you know what?" She was feeling a little better. "I'm never going to walk away, not from any of it. I can't. I am what I am. I'm intense, just as my fiance said. I feel everything around me, and I'm glad about that. I can't imagine life without the depth, without the magic that accompanies the pain.”
Tara Taylor Quinn, A Child's Wish
