Tara Dairman is a novelist, playwright, and recovering round-the-world traveler (two years, seventy-four countries!). She grew up in New York, received a B.A. in Creative Writing from Dartmouth College and worked for several years as a magazine editor, managing freelance writers that she never met face-to-face. While in that job, Tara realized that she could probably be tricked into publishing an article by a kid if the writing was good enough and the kid sent professional-sounding e-mails. Voilà: the premise for her first novel, ALL FOUR STARS, was born.
