Tara Ellison was born in London and raised between Sydney and Hong Kong before coming to the United States.
“As for my writing credentials, life has quite simply supplied me with ample material. As a child, I lived all over the world and didn’t feel I fit in anywhere. The upside is that now, I adore traveling and can feel at home almost everywhere. After years of dreaming of being an actress in the US, the crushing realization was that when I finally got here, I couldn’t get past my wretched nerves and had to look for something else to do! Years of floundering followed while I tried to figure out what that could possibly be. Writing had always been a secret passion that I never dared to share with anybody. Finally I started writing classes at the marvelous UCLA Extension here in Los Angeles and with some encouragement, got my nerve up and realized that I did, in fact, have something to say.  As for this particular story, I lived through my own crappy divorce and in the middle of it I thought: I could really use a laugh! So out of the depths of despair, inspiration for this novel was born. My hope is that other ladies enduring trying times out there might get a kick out of Scarlett’s foibles and missteps on the road to love - and share a laugh along the way.”
Tara Ellison is married and lives in Los Angeles. Synchronized Breathing is her first novel.
