Tara (pronounced Tar-ah and with a southern drawl) lives and plays on the Florida Gulf Coast. A former print news and online media reporter, she now spends her days roaming the woods and beaches of the Panhandle talking to herself, penning eclectic fiction, and taking photographs. She can be found most days at “Thin spiral notebook” trying to quiet the voices in her head.

Having recently entered the ranks of the 50-something demographic, Tara struggles with an emptying nest and what she wants to be when she grows up. The mother of two 20-something children, she is learning to accept that she can’t keep her kids babies forever, and to welcome the changes that come along with redefining her role as a mother and wife.

  1. Hi Tara, I feel privileged to follow your blog….because i strongly believe earth is round and today’s kids are tomorrow’s elders.. better be prepared than to feel bad!!


  2. Finally another writer, huh? Wonderful! I can never find online fiction writers these days! I’m writing you a paragraph on the “Other Writers” page of my blog. Thanks! My blog is at, by the way.



  3. Your blog is beautiful, very unique and appealing. My kiddos are growing up too so I can totally relate. Moving into a new role in their lives keeps things interesting!


  4. I came to you via Terri’s blog and since I live in Florida and am an amateur photographer and an aspiring writer I found your site very interesting, yet there is no information on the writer themselves? What gives?


So, tell me what you really think:
