Taryn Bashford, Author
Taryn is a full-time author and juggles her writing with family life, a dog, and characters from her latest book insisting they help make dinner. This can be disconcerting as Jacob is always sticking his fingers in the cheese sauce and Harper can’t cook. Taryn’s been an English Literature Honours student, an advertising sales rep and a CEO of an internet company, but she plans to write inspiring, engaging novels until the day she can no longer type. Taryn is fascinated by teens who surpass the norm. This is what she likes to explore in her writing, remembering that elite teens have flaws too. Taryn is an adrenaline junkie and during her last writer’s retreat, found herself dangling on an abseiling rope 2000m from the ground. The Harper Effect is Taryn's first book and is a sizzling coming-of-age YA novel. Her second YA novel, Purple Lies, is due for release in 2019.
