Tara is in marketing for Simon Pulse, Aladdin Books, Little Simon, and Simon Spotlight. She joined Simon & Schuster in July 2015 and was previously at Little, Brown for Young Readers. She has an affinity for all things purple, bookish, and crafty. Tara is a proud word nerd with a wanderlust that she quenches by reading about other worlds. A Great and Terrible Beauty is probably her fave YA, followed closely by Anne of Green Gables. You can find her on twitter at @Tara_pterosaur.
