The truth is subjective, to what the lonely lets in.

Emalyn Spicer has lived with it for a long time. She thinks it goes back further than her memories do. She knows it goes back further than the OCD.

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 book was amazing!! It was hard for me to wrap my mind around the story but only because I have NEVER read a story quite like this one in my life. lol I loved everything about it... Wonderful story line with a very dark side :) I would deff. recommend this to all my friends that love to read. There wasn't a whole lot of miss spelled words or anything so pretty happy about that. I could not even think how Em felt and wen't through and really makes you think about all the horrible people in this word!! Thank you Tara Brown for this wonderful story!!

This was the most intense book by Tara that I have read, but good intense. The characters are very strong and some of them you can't decide if you love or hate them. The sex secnes are well written, they are dirty but not raunchy dirty. I really hope she writes more books like this one but then again I think she can write anything and it will be amazing.

Wow, just wow. Amazing!!! The way this is written you will never be able to see all the twists and turns. It will keep you turning the pages and trying to figure it all out.

I am a huge fan Tara's work and have enjoyd every book so far and will continue to read her new releases. However I was a little sceptical as it is a drastic change from herbother books I wasn't sure I would enjoy it. When it comes to Erotica and romance Sylvia Day is my first choice. However, I loved that the story line took presidence over the erotica side as I often find books lose the story just to describe the sexual side. I felt every character evolved and that they were all essential to the plot. The sex scenes were excellently written and shows true skill for an author not to overstep the mark into seedy. All my sceptasism is now aroded and hope that Tara will branch out into this genre more often.
