My name is Tara Creel and I am so excited to be participating in Pitch Wars this August!
I am a proud mom of four boys
and am madly in love with my husband of ten years.
And, of course, I write.
Yes, I look like that when I write, I have to be productive during my daily writing time because, Four Boys.
I work as an editor for Month9Books, Tantrum Books and am in my happy place editing middle grade novels. I also review books for the Deseret News and write articles for KSL.com. I graduated with a degree in Journalism and taught two years of high school English and Journalism before I decided to stay home with my babies.
I live in Southern California, but in the desert. Luckily, we live close to the beaches and the theme parks and get mini vacations whenever we need them.
When I’m not playing with my boys or dating my husband, I really like to read, watch TV and movies, make crafts out of book pages, and practice my Chopped and Master Chef skills.
Movies/TV that I can watch again and again:
Pride and Prejudice, Dan in Real Life, Elizabethtown, Gilmore Girls, The Office, Friends
Tangled, Meet the Robinsons, Beauty and the Beast, Maleficent
PITCH WARS * PITCH WARS * PITCH WARS * PITCH WARS * PITCH WARS
