Author Tara V. Thompson has lived all over the South. In the Southern Adventures series, she combines her love of travel and Southern culture and food. As a kid, she loved reading books that took her to new places in her imagination. Today, she hopes to share that experience through writing books that explore some of her favorite places in the South. She currently lives in Savannah, Georgia with her family and two cats.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
My two favorite hobbies are reading and traveling, both of which have inspired my book series. I love reading science fiction, fantasy, and crime novels. In my free time, I take day trips all over the South. I enjoy exploring new places close to my home too.
Describe your desk
My desk is a mix of scrap paper, post-its, and organized files - typical strategic chaos.
