"I don't want to be a girlfriend to the tenth power, so i agreed to marry him.  if i didn't, someone else would.  then he'd smush spiders for her.  i'd be back to putting on pumps and using body spray to kill them."

A Few Words About Me...

     "I let my towel float, sit on it, as it caresses the ground, soaking toes into sand.  I bake from cinnamon to cocoa bread brown, loving the things the sun is doing to me.  But, it's not enough.  I call the deacon, to bring the stuff.  I need to get high."


 - Taryn Lane,

 from Sunday Sanctified, Monday Sinner


    You can find me having a blast teaching, ten months out of the year, shopping, on a beach, two months out of the year, shopping, swimming in trashy reality T.V., shopping, or cradling a good book.  After over 12 years, I'm still learning new things about children and how best to reach them. 
     My students have definitely helped prepare me for a career in writing. I'm almost done with my second official story, the beginning of a trilogy,  and am excited about bringing these new characters to you.  I've been asked if I'm planning a sequel for Vida and Gia.  They, definitely, will be making appearances in future works.  
     Driving and trains...I like. Flying...I hate. However, I love travelling, spending time with friends and family and I can't wait to meet you!  Remember to always love you and LOVE YOUR LIFE!  Be on the lookout, for a book signing near you.  See you there!                                                                          - Rosetta
