Tara Ellison was born in London and raised between Sydney and Hong Kong, before coming to the United States as a teen.
Her writing has been published in The L.A. Times, The Washington Post and HarpersBazaar.com, among many others.
Synchronized Breathing is her first novel and is a saucy, playful take on the dating scene in Los Angeles and the challenges of starting over after a divorce. She likes to think of it as ‘Fleabag for Single Moms.’ (As in, ‘If you take yourself very seriously, this is not the book for you!’) It is her hope that other women enduring difficult breakups might get a kick out of lead character Scarlett’s missteps on the path to love – and share a laugh along the way.
Tara is married and lives in Los Angeles, California.
