About Tara Brown

Split personalities? I won't rule it out.
A little crazy? Possibly.
Boring? NEVER!

I am the award-winning, international bestselling mystery writer, Tara Brown--but that's not all. Some days I'm the cook, others I'm the maid, but mostly I'm the chauffeur to my two darling girls. Oh, and I'm always the dog trainer and cat wrangler. And on some occasions, I fancy myself a bit of a con artist--I believe I have my husband convinced that changing kitty litter is bad for women.

I love hearing from people. Feel free to join the conversation over at, or email me at


The reason I separate the names is because of the Young Adult following I have and new readers to me. Because I cross between adult and young adult, I have to have safe places for the young adult readers to find new books. Also, if you are just looking for regular romance or only like paranormal or erotica, then we have a brand just for you! Here is a breakdown of my genres and pen names--even I get confused.

TARA BROWN - My main page and essentially my brand. Books published under Tara Brown will be mostly suspenseful romance and mystery. Blood and Bone, The Lonely, and The Single Lady Spy Series are among those. Not all are intended for young readers. Crimson Cove Mysteries is a Tara Brown read, romantic suspense and mystery, and it is Young Adult.

Tara Brown writing as AE WATSON - My pen name for the majority of my Young Adult books. This is a safe haven. Here you will find, BORN, HERE, The Seventh Day, White Girl Problems, The Light Trilogy, Vengeance, etc. This is my page that is safe for YA readers of a mature reading level who enjoy a wide variety of genres. I do not write for people who don't like a little suspense with a lot of fighting and a heavy dose of sarcasm. Also there are love triangles and cliffhangers and other annoying things. I am a jerk when it comes to revealing all the answers at once. I like figuring out puzzles and assume everyone else does too.

Tara Brown writing as ERIN LEIGH - New Adult Romance and Chick Lit. Recommended reading age is eighteen and over, as there is some sexual content. If you enjoy reading other New Adult, you should be fine. But it is romance, romance, romance.

Tara Brown writing as TL BROWN - Adult Paranormal, Science Fiction, and Fantasy. TL IS NOT FOR YOUNG READERS AT ALL! These books are for the people who love Science Fiction and Fantasy. They are all Romance based but very paranormal or science fiction or fantasy.

Tara Brown writing as SOPHIE STARR - Adult Only Erotica. I like to call Sophie my porn handle. SHE IS NOT FOR YOUNG READERS AT ALL! I am ashamed but not enough to stop writing them, so more to follow I am sure.

Hope you have a great day and, of course, happy reading!

I just love all of Tara Brown's books!!! I have read all but one of her books that are out. And she still amazes me! This book is a great start to this series. I feel for Rayen and what she is going threw. How would you feel if you were reborn? Well that's how she feels. Lost and confused she has to find a way to save herself. With a broken heart she has to put her trust in to the 2 men who have betrayed her....This is a must read, and looking forward to the next book of this series!!!

Absolutely love this. I was disappointed when I found out Death was being put on hold for this as I am a huge fan of the Devils Roses, but now I am over the moon! This book is brilliant, it had me from the beginning and really feeling for Rayne and getting lost with her, crying with her and feeling her confusion! This book is fantastic and a must read, Tara Brown's work keeps getting better

Loved this book. If your looking a fast paced, easy to read, page turner and love the supernatural, look no further. Brown has an fabulous ability to weave pop culture, current issues and true history into the backdrop of her supernatural world. The result is a very authentic, believable plot, which says a lot considering how far-out-there this story is! Great characters, original story, well written.
The Light of the World is entertaining and will leave you wanting more. Buy it, you're in for a treat!

5 out of 5 stars

First off I will forever be a TB fan! Her books get better with everyone I read! I'd have to say this is now my favorite of hers, once I got to reading my eyes could not read fast enough! I absolutely love the supernatural world she created in this book, with the vampire, Van Helsings and Nixies (which are my fave, they are like mermaid witches!) just to name few! The Light of The World is about a girl named Rayne who finds out she's something special to the world and ends up running and fighting for her life. You get to follow her along this big coaster ride and meet a bunch of amazing characters along the way! I couldn't get enough of them honestly I loved them! There is Mona her super sweet and caring roommate who is there for Rayne through everything (but I think she's up to something!), her crazy hippie of a mother Willow who is a witch, and hair brained hilarious friend Michelle and let's not forget one (yes you read that right ONE of TWO hotties!) of the guys who fall for Rayne, Wyatt he sounds sizzling hot and yummy but you honestly don't know to love him or hate him! I promise you won't regret this purchase, the story line will captivate you, suck you in roll you around and spit you out at the end begging for more! Thanks for another smashing read girl awaiting book two!!!!

Here are my two fave lines!!

"No, just curious. You know like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and shit"

"Constantine gets points for effort and creativity. I think I peed my pants. That scared the shit out of me"

OMW! To put Tara Browns book The Light Of The World in perspective.... How would you feel to know you were born dead but are alive at the same time? That when you sleep, you sleep among the dead and you only wake when they allow it? How about knowing that you have been born 5 times only lived up to the night before your 21st birthday and your destiny is already set and you are the only one who could change it? Yea I can't even begin to answer those questions! All I can say is the lead character Rayne was given the short end of the stick in this Novel and now she's unsure of who she can truly trust with her life and heart.
This book will literally pull you in and you will NOT be able to put it down. Between Witches, Vampires, The Van Helsing family, Angels, Demons and well one special breed that saves the world from sin....I feel like I am saying to much but not saying enough about The Light Of The World. I don't want to spoil your reading so just take my word on this one it is truly amazing.... but beware the cliffhanger is going to make you want more! Happy Reading all!!
