Originally a magazine sub-editor by trade, I'd long aspired to write fiction. I began writing novels in my spare time and eventually got taken on by a literary agent - twice - but things didn't work out due to the rapidly changing world of publishing. That's why I finally decided to self-publish and, so far, I've not looked back. I talk more about self-publishing on my blog and in an interview with The Guardian (August 2013).
Currently my four novels, Package Deal, Hot Property, Pearls and Blown-Away Man are available on Amazon as ebooks, as is my collection of humorous short stories for children, The Adventures of Fartella Gasratilova.
I live with my husband, two children and a rather chunky cat called Ted in the fantastic city of Brighton, England, and continue to work part-time as a copywriter. You can visit my blog at http://tashaharrison.com/ (where you'll find writers' tips, author interviews, dubious poetry and miscellaneous rants) or follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TashaHarrison_ . I also have a Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/TashaHarrisonWriter where I keep readers updated about my latest releases and blog posts, etc.
