About Me

‘Who am I?’… always a tricky question to answer isn’t it?

But hey, who doesn’t like a challenge…


I’m Tara C Steele.

I’m a mum of two little girls, a passionate author of children’s fiction, a freelance writer and a website creator.

The things I love most in life are my daughters and family (well, duh!), my amazing friends, writing, reading, science fiction, chocolate, cake, coffee, Columbo, designing websites and airports.

I just read that back and should clarify, I love designing websites AND I love airports. I’ve never designed an airport.

My Children’s Fiction Stories

How to be a superhero and change the world cover

You can read a bit more about my books here.

I discovered my love of writing children’s fiction when I wrote a short story for my elder daughter’s birthday.

I wanted to create a fun short story to make into a picture book for her, that combined her love of outer space and sci-fi (which I guess she gets from me!) with a powerful message about how much power we all have to impact the world and help people.

What transpired was a kind of Dr Who meets Sliding Doors tale of Sally the alien, who comes to Earth and shows a little boy what a huge difference he can make, and how his actions create a powerful ‘ripple’ effect.

Well, I wasn’t prepared for how much I would love the process, or for the astounding kind positive feedback I would receive. 

That spurred me on to write a follow up story about Sally and a baby going on an amazing colourful space journey to a magical planet, where baby finds a secret!

The third ‘Sally story’ is now in the pipeline, and involves more funny galactic cosmic adventures.

My Writing

I have loved reading and writing ever since I learned to read and write, which I guess was around thirty-seven years ago.

However, I only discovered that I really really love to write a few years ago when I studied for a law degree. 

I just loved finding the perfect combinations of words to get my points across in essays.

Studying alongside a job and a toddler was tough, but I graduated with a First at the end of 2018 – so I guess I found some good combinations in the end!

I now write regular posts on multiple websites and blogs across a range of genres. Which is amazing because not only do I get to write all day but I learn loads about completely random subjects I’d never have otherwise known about!

I also write regularly on a couple of successful blogs which I created and run. 

And that’s that!

So I’ll get back to eagerly awaiting the publication of my first book in October 2021, while you (I hope!) enjoy the website! 

I hope you’ve found it helpful and that you love reading my books as soon as they come out.

If you’d like to read some more of my writing, you can just hop on over to the blog.
