From a very early age, Tara C. Allred developed a great love for reading and writing. By fifth grade her goals had been established—someday she would be a published author.
Allred was raised in California. Her philosopher/psychologist father and artist mother provided a critical thinking and creative home life. Their influence helped Allred develop the attributes and belief that she could pursue her writing dreams. In 1992, she was recognized as a California Scholar of the Arts for Creative Writing. Allred has a degree in Psychology, with a minor in English, from Brigham Young University.
Allred loves nature, exploring the sciences, and the genuine thrill of learning and creating.
