And now for the obligatory head shot and formal bit: 

Tara Ross_headshot_green.jpg

Tara K. Ross lives in the picturesque town of Eden Mills, Canada, where she writes in a cabin in the woods. She works as a school speech-language pathologist and mentors writers through her podcast and blog. She is blessed with a ridiculously supportive family that grants her time to create Up Lit stories about family and community. When Tara is not writing or editing sound files, you can find her rock climbing the Ontario escarpment, or planning her family's next great adventure. Learn more at
