I am Taryn Raye, member of the Kentucky Independent Writers. My debut novel, Castaway Hearts, a historical romance is available from Turquoise Morning Press. I'm currently working on my 11th novel, a contemporary romance.A romantic at heart, my love of storytelling began in childhood with the typical fairy tales and my membership at age 10 to the Just for Girls Book Club. I grew up on classics and contemporary tales, but it wasn’t long before my tastes also matured as I ventured into my mother’s stash of Harlequins and Silhouettes, too.
Always an avid reader, I have found that some stories, the ones most near and dear, reside where only I can hear them~ in my heart and my mind. For the majority of my life, those stories remained buried as I put my writing on the back burner to everything else.
There comes a point for writers though, where the desire, the necessity to write, overrides our own logic and reasoning. I couldn’t keep promising myself I would get around to it “someday” and for me, that realization came in 2006 when the emptiness ached so bad I had to fill it with the one thing my heart desired most—writing all the stories locked within. I hope to share these stories with you now and in the years to come and I hope you’ll enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them.
Born and raised in a small town in Central Kentucky, I now reside in the southern part of the state with my husband, stepson, daughter and my mischief-making cat named Miscellaneous, aka Mizzy.
