About Tara Randel


Tara Randel has enjoyed a lifelong love of books, especially romance and mystery genres, so it didn't come as a surprise when she began writing with the dream of becoming published. After finding Romantic Times magazine in a bookstore many years ago, she found information about writing organizations. Soon after, she joined Romance Writers of America. She located the local RWA chapter and immediately attended her first meeting. There was no stopping her after that! 

In September 2015, Tara received the ACRA Readers Choice Heart of Excellence Award for Honeysuckle Bride.

 In October 2015, Tara made the USA Today Best seller list as part of A Heartwarming Christmas, a holiday collection featuring twelve authors.

 In 2019, His One and Only Bride was a contemporary romance finalist in the National Excellence in Romance Fiction Awards.
