During a 5 year stint working in a children's emergency room Tara completed her degree in psychology from The University of Texas at San Antonio. In early 2008 she found herself placed on the dreaded bed rest in pregnancy. This lasted for the final 2 months of her pregnancy with the baby boy now known in the blogging world as "Banjo". At that time she was introduced to blogging as a way to stay in touch with the outside world from the comfort of her very own bed/couch/recliner.

In the fall of 2009 she created Dandy Giveaway, an innovative advertising website where readers can enter to win products from various companies. She continues to write there and the site has quickly gained a loyal following.

In her spare time Tara likes to spend time with her family, go biking, read, sew, and knit. Tara currently resides in St. Louis, MO with her husband and son.
