About Tara

Running N ReadingBlogInstagram | Twitter 

When she’s not working as a hospital chaplain, Tara is usually outside running, often with an audiobook, or reading with two dogs curled around her lap. Her favorite reads are usually literary fiction but she also enjoys engaging thrillers and nonfiction, with a few historical fiction and YA titles thrown in for an occasional break.

    I enjoyed the podcast! And I liked The Art of Fielding too. What a nice baseball story. I’m curious about the Emma Hooper book and also have had Still Life on my shelf for forever. I must get to it! Thanks for the push.
