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, 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.
