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. Her debut novel, FADE TO WHITE, will be published by Illuminate YA (an imprint of LPC) in spring 2020 .

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.
