Me: Where did the idea for Perigee Moon come from?
Tara: The idea for Perigee Moon was one of those ideas that just kind of hit me one day. I had known for a while that I wanted to write something that involved time travel. And then I had the idea one morning at breakfast...why not do a time travel book about witches and the Salem Witch Trials? After that I did tons of research and Rowan and Alex's story was born!
Me: So, when did you know you wanted to be an author?
Tara: I have known I wanted to be an author since I was a kid. I started writing poetry in elementary school. By high school I knew writing was something I had to do.
Me: Are you planning on a sequel to Perigee Moon?
Tara: As of right now I don't have a sequel planned for Perigee Moon. It has always been a stand alone story to me.
Me: Have you got any other projects that your working on?
Tara: Yes! I actually have another paranormal YA book, INBETWEEN, coming out in Fall of 2012 from Entangled Publishing. It is a book about a grim reaper that falls in love with a human girl whose soul he is sent to reap. It will be the first in a three part series.
Me: That sounds exciting! What advice would you give to young people who want to be a writer/author?
Tara: I have 3 big pieces of advice to aspiring writers.
1.) Read. Read everything you can get your hands on. Reading is the best tool you have when it comes to developing your voice.
2.) Write everyday. Make a goal and stick to it. Like they say, practice makes perfect.
3.) Don't give up. In this journey I have been dealt a lot of rejection and had to develop a thick skin. If you get a "no", don't give up. Just look at it as being one step closer to a "yes".
Do not fear! There isn't much of a wait left until Perigee Moon comes out!!!!!!
