Tali was introduced to comics by watching a few kids play the X-Men arcade game at the ice skating rink that the summer camp she attended took her to. Her love of comics grew as she watched animated programs such as X-Men and Batman the Animated Series. After watching Dragon Ball Z and Sailor Moon, Tali fell in love not only with anime & manga, but also with the Japanese culture at large.

She was paired with artist Kelly Turnbull. She also wrote a one page story for the Womanthology Holiday PDF & Valentine’s Day special with artist Brenda Kirk titled “Don’t Let the Light Go Out” and “June”. In 2013 two of her stories were published in Grayhaven Comics’ The Gathering Comic All Women’s 2 and Crime anthologies.
