Tara Eglington grew up in Byron Bay, NSW surrounded by crystals, chakras and sound-based healing. Tara's only option for teen rebellion was to complete a non-arts degree and move to Sydney for a ‘normal' career, but she ended up in a creative industry anyway. Tara is the author of four YA novels: How to Keep a Boy from Kissing You, How to Convince a Boy to Kiss You, My Best Friend is a Goddess and The Long-Distance Playlist. Her hobbies when she's not writing include watching endless cat videos on YouTube, planning pretend holidays to the Maldives, and daydreaming about who would play Hayden Paris in the film adaption of How to Keep a Boy from Kissing You.
