Taryn is the author of The Harper Effect and currently lives on the Sunshine Coast with a family that includes teen children and a highly-strung dog. Taryn's lived on four continents, meaning her job experience has been varied: an advertising sales rep, a ski chalet chef, a late-night newsreader and the CEO of an internet company, but writing and Australia are her true loves. Taryn is currently working on her PhD in Creative
Writing while tutoring undergraduates and writing more novels. When she's not writing or teaching, she's training for triathlons in the hope they will compensate for the fact she spends ten hours a day sitting on her tushie.
