About Tara Brown

I am the mother of two beautiful girls who are growing up so fast, the wife of a cute guy in a uniform (my own personal hero), and a writer.
My family will tell you it doesn't exactly fall into that order. Especially around dinner time when I "Cook" with a takeout menu and my face plastered to my computer.
I also have two cats who I adore more than I should, like more than people I know, and a dog. He is a beagle who is naughty but just so darned cute. He gives you that little beagle face and then steals your slice of pizza.
I have a busy mind and even busier fingers. I can write fast and keep track of a large cast, but I can't remember why I'm at the grocery store. I try to write lists but they always end up being notes for books or indie bands. I LOVE INDIE MUSIC!
I talk to myself in the car and sing too loud for my skill level. The invention of Bluetooth has made talking in the car less awkward but if you hear me singing, run.
I love writing. I love my characters like they are my friends and I am telling their version of the truth.
My worst flaw is the horrid English accent which I read everything with. If I read aloud it comes too. I'm not English, so I can't even do the accent which makes it awkward for anyone who is nearby.
My favourite authors are Robert Jordan and Jane Austen and Robert Mccammon and Jim Crace. I think Stephen King and Dean Koontz have the most unique imaginations. I have the hardest time not LOVING Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger. I know all the serial killers have a copy but I adored that novel. It made me feel a thousand different things and one of them was more alive. (And not in the least bit serial killer-ish)
When I grow up I want to be James Patterson or Nora Roberts. I aspire to be like them, always trying to hone my skills and work harder.
My genres are all over the map. I have Paranormal Romance, Contemporary Romance, Science Fiction, Erotica (under Sophie Starr my porn name so my mom doesn't know), Thrillers, and even some Romantic Comedies.

Thanks for checking me out and I hope you got lost in something I wrote or it made you so HAPPY/SAD/BLISSFUL/TURNED ON/ANGRY/EXCITED/FRIGHTENED/HORRIFIED/MAD that you couldn't believe it.

The list of what is coming out this year is not completed. I will keep my Facebook page as up to date as I can.

Have a great day and happy reading!

This was the "if the ceiling is falling down around me, I don't care, I'm reading" type of book. As an avid reading not much surprises me and this story I hadn't completely figured out until the end. It was like unwrapping a much anticipated Christmas present. The characters and supernaturals created by the author are unique to this book, something fresh and new. There is also a lot of action and screwy teenage hormones. I loved it!

I loved this book!! I have read all of Tara Brown's new books, so starting The Devils Roses I kind of went backwards. LOL I love Aimee's character, she is a nerd and plays World of Warcraft!! And that is my game :) I was alittle disaponted when she finally came out of her shell, but only because it wasn't like her to be stuck in a love triangle. Shane is every girls dream and Amiee breaks his heart. And as for Aleks ummy (hehe) I understand her confusion between both boys. Amiee gose threw what every girl fears. How do you go back to normal after that? She has to go threw the loss of her famil and friends but most of all her true love. I just loved everything about this story! I can't wait to see what happens next.

This was a great book....
But the real story was how she became a rose and the mystery that changed the lives of her friends and family forever.
What happen in this little town could has happen anywhere.

What happen to kids when the parents spit?
Great read......
