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.

My view is this: Writing is a very personal thing - it's expression from the soul. If you need to write, then you need to write. You have to separate yourself from the noise, the world, and just write. The things you're seeing about the industry are true. They've always been true. Being a career author isn't easy. It isn't guaranteed. But if you have to write, you write. If you're meant to be published, you will be, as long as you write, but writing isn't always about being published. Write first. Worry about the rest after you've written.(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.

The life of a writer is not normal. It's just not. At least not for this writer. I walk around with people talking to me all day long - not in a schizophrenic way - they don't take over my thoughts - they just talk to me. Constantly. Kind of like having your friend sitting down with you and filling you in on what's going on in her life. Only I have a lot of friends doing that. These days, diffe... Read more of this blog post »

" Or maybe she should just get to the point she was trying most to avoid, and think about strangling Alfonso - metaphorically of course. "

“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

“Faith and trust come from an inner ability to believe in something unseen, to expect it to be there without ever having proof that it is.”
Tara Taylor Quinn, Sophie's Secret

“... my choices still follow me. They are a part of me.'
'Only if you let them be. Yes, choices define your life, Soph, but you make new ones every single day. Life is a work in progress, and how we define it changes as we change, as our choices change.”
Tara Taylor Quinn, Sophie's Secret
