Tasha Van Der Hyde


I love to read. Love, love, love it. It is my escape to a place where anything is possible. Curling up with a book is essential therapy for me and I enjoy finding people who are similarly affected with reading fever.

I have been a closet writer for years, starting multiple books only to talk myself out of them, arguing to myself that writing was a silly dream and I didn't have the time to waste on it. One day something clicked and I thought, screw it...I'm gonna go for it. And I did! I finally completed a book and put it out there for the world to see. It was one of the scariest things I'd ever done and completely worth it. My first review from someone I didn't know blew my mind and at that point it became one of the most rewarding things I'd ever done. So, book one of my Avenlore Series,Tethered, is down, and book two is in the works! I would love to know what you think of this world, of Dani, Nik, and Liam!

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a very rural area of Virginia so, I really enjoy the outdoors. Growing up, we spent summers in the woods finding hidden waterfalls and playing in creeks. It was always kind of magical and mysterious to me and it still is. I like incorporating that magic I find in nature into my stories.
When did you first start writing?
About six years ago. I started two different books but, I decided it was insane for me to spend time chasing a pipe dream. So the writing fell off for a while.
