Hey there! I'm Tarah.

I'm an author and adventurer living in sunny Colorado with two dogs, one cat, one tiny savage, and my partner in crime. 

I write stories with badass heroines, tormented heroes, lots of action, and a dash of romance. I love to put ordinary people in extraordinary situations and give them a chance to be the hero of their small town...or all of humanity.

When I'm not writing or fixing my toddler one of the 12 meals he eats in a day, you might find me hiking, strumming my ukulele, or reading under the covers. I'm a dog person and a cat person and an INFJ. I'm always down to talk about Harry Potter, Veronica Mars, or Outlander.

Love my books? I have a weekly podcast where I chat about my current work in progress, my latest outdoor adventures, and what I'm reading. Come hang out with me every Friday in The Writing Cabin on your favorite podcast app or on my YouTube channel.
