Tara Goedjen1_updated.JPG


Tara Goedjen loves anything mysterious. She is the author of THE BREATHLESS (Delacorte Press, Random House Children's Books) and NO BEAUTIES OR MONSTERS, out with Delacorte in Fall 2021.


Tara wrote her first story at age ten about children who disappeared at midnight, and she’s been writing dark tales ever since. Mostly raised in Alabama, she played college tennis in Iowa and then moved to Australia before heading back to the US, where she now lives and writes.


In between books, Tara has worked as a tennis coach, a university writing teacher, and as an editor for a publishing house. These days, when she’s not making up stories, she's probably chasing after two small monsters or hiking through a mysterious wood while dreaming up her next novel.
