As a teen, Tara learned that well written prose can change the entire trajectory of a person's life. Case in point: her life. She now has the joy of sharing this discovery with youth everyday, through her work as a school Speech Pathologist and mentor with local youth programs. She is blessed with a ridiculously supportive family that carves out time each week for her to create stories that tackle the interplay of faith and mental health. FADE TO WHITE (IlluminateYA/LPC) is her debut novel.

When Tara is not writing or reading all things YA, you can find her rock climbing the Ontario escarpment, planning her family's next jungle trek or blogging about hope and gratitude at www.hopeprose.com.

I already have a second novel written that is loosely connected to the story world of Fade to White. It is currently on submission so I can't say too much right now, but it takes place near one of my favourite northern communities, may have bonfires, romance and a therapy dog? I will be sure to fill everyone in on the details as soon as I can!

Turning Query Trenches into Tree Houses

At long last, you’ve written those two glorious words at the end of your manuscript *cue Glee-inspired jazz hands*. You then went back through your already gorgeous prose and rewrote the majority of it, except for that one heavenly-inspired chapter. No sentence has been left unscathed by your Find and Replace tool and your ellipses are finally under control. Phew! You have read your story aloud, h
