Meet the Author

I am the mother of two beautiful girls who are growing up so fast, the wife of a cute guy in a uniform (my own personal hero), and a writer.My family will tell you it doesn't exactly fall into that order. Especially around dinner time when I "Cook" with a takeout menu and my face plastered to my computer.I also have two cats who I adore more than I should, like more than people I know, and a dog. He is a beagle who is naughty but just so darned cute. He gives you that little beagle face and then steals your slice of pizza.I have a busy mind and even busier fingers. I can write fast and keep track of a large cast, but I can't remember why I'm at the grocery store. I try to write lists but they always end up being notes for books or indie bands. I LOVE INDIE MUSIC!I talk to myself in the car and sing too loud for my skill level. The invention of Bluetooth has made talking in the car less awkward but if you hear me singing, run.I love writing. I love my characters like they are my friends and I am telling their version of the truth.My worst flaw is the horrid English accent which I read everything with. If I read aloud it comes too. I'm not English, so I can't even do the accent which makes it awkward for anyone who is nearby.My favourite authors are Robert Jordan and Jane Austen and Robert Mccammon and Jim Crace. I think Stephen King and Dean Koontz have the most unique imaginations. I have the hardest time not LOVING Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger. I know all the serial killers have a copy but I adored that novel. It made me feel a thousand different things and one of them was more alive. (And not in the least bit serial killer-ish)When I grow up I want to be James Patterson or Nora Roberts. I aspire to be like them, always trying to hone my skills and work harder.My genres are all over the map. I have Paranormal Romance, Contemporary Romance, Science Fiction, Erotica (under Sophie Starr my porn name so my mom doesn't know), Thrillers, and even some Romantic Comedies.If you would like to reach me for whatever reason, please visit me at my facebook page - facebook.com/TaraBrownAuthor. You can also email me at tarabrownauthor@hotmail.comThanks for checking me out and I hope you got lost in something I wrote or it made you so HAPPY/SAD/BLISSFUL/TURNED ON/ANGRY/EXCITED/FRIGHTENED/HORRIFIED/MAD that you couldn't believe it.The list of what is coming out this year is not completed. I will keep my Facebook page as up to date as I can.Have a great day and happy reading!Tar

    This book has it all - Witches, Angels, Demons and more! All mix

    This book has it all - Witches, Angels, Demons and more! All mixed in with the wonders and horrors of being a teenager...I found the book to be a fast and fun read. It was hard for me to put it down and I was sad to see it end. 'Cursed' is a fantastic start to what I'm sure will be a wonderful series, one that I look forward to continuing with in the near future.

    Awesome!

    This book is really good. It had a great plot with a mixture of romance and action and mystery. It was really good for a free book. I will definitely buy the next book in the series

    *CONTAINS SPOILERS*

    I always read reviews before ordering a book. I was excited to find a book with a good star rating and lots of good things to say. I'm disappointed because I feel like this book is getting more than it deserves.

    Reading the summary, I thought this book was going to be AMAZING. Apparently its easier to write a good summary than a good book.

    The author clearly doesn't know how commas work. She literally used commas when she shouldn't & didn't when she should of. I couldn't stand her run-on sentences. I also hated the stereotypes mentioned because to me it sounds immature.

    "...and you're starting to look like one of those Goths."
    "Besides it's embarrassing having the Emo angst queen as my sister."
    "I truly looked like a Goth. I couldn't deny it."

    The main character Aimee lost her mom 8 months prior to where the story begins. I can understand why she's upset and completely understand that she misses her mom. But the fact that she WANTS to be depressed and drown in her sorrow, I can't understand. I don't respect self-pity. I was hoping she would be a stronger character than that.

    The characters personalities are immature which was hard to get past. Aimee said she was stuck with her best friend as the only boyfriend option. They weren't together, he never made a move on her, and she didn't know for a fact that he even had feelings for her. And I was so smug when he said he didn't see her as more than a friend.

    As much as she tried not to seem like it, she's pathetic. She kept mentioning over and over again how she's in love with her sister's boyfriend which got old pretty quick. The author seemed to force bad things to happen, and they all had a sad story. Its so depressing in a boring way which I have no sympathy for.

    Everything is too predictable & obvious. I wasn't ever on edge or in suspense. That really bored me. I would of liked the book when I was 14, so if anything, I'd recommend it for younger girls. So needless to say, I won't be reading the other books to this series.

    Read between the grammar

    I haven't finished the first book yet, but as a suggestion to the author, I would strongly recommend using a beta-reader in the future, and editing for grammar (particularly punctuation) before publishing. The dialogue at times seems a little stilted or unrealistic, but only infrequently.

    Other than that, the story shows some promise and the mystery is intriguing so far. The characters are real and have depth, and they're multidimensional. The mature content seems to be handled sensitively. Keep up the good work.

    Confusing writing style and storyline. The beginning had so much potential,but the author cant seem to make up her mind. Irritating that the character is so depressing and she falls for two guys.

    This book started out great, but quickly went down hill.  I thought the characters were immature and unrealistic. I wanted to read this series because I recently read a series from the same author and fell in love with the story, but there is no saving grace for this series. It badly needs to be edited. I will give the author the benefit of the doubt since this  seems to be the first novel she had published.
