Tara Sue Me wrote her first novel at the age of twelve. It would be twenty years before she picked up her pen to write the second.
After completing several clean romances, she decided to try her hand at something spicier and started The Submissive. What began as a writing exercise quickly took on a life of its own. An avid reader of all types of fiction, she soon discovered she enjoyed writing a variety as well.
Tara lives in the Southeastern United States with her family, two dogs, and a cat.

Tell us about yourself.
I’m really just your everyday normal woman. I work a day job, have two school-aged children, a husband, and two dogs. I drive the kids to and from school, to ball practice and back, help with book reports, cook dinner. I just also write steamy romances.
How did you get your start as a writer?
I started writing as a child – poetry, short stories, and the like. I handwrote my first ‘novel’ at age twelve. A horrible, preteen angst filled romance.
I didn’t write fiction again until I was in my early thirties.
What is your typical writing schedule like?
I usually don’t get a chance to write until late at night when everyone’s in bed. I’ve tried writing while the kids are up, but quickly found it’s difficult to write sexy times when you’re surounded by, “You take a shower first”, “No you”, “No YOU”, “I did it first last night”, “MOM!”
I like writing at night. It’s quiet and still. I can turn my entire focus to the world I’m creating without worrying about disruptions. Or a child reading over my shoulder.
Tell us about THE SUBMISSIVE.
At its heart, THE SUBMISSIVE is a love story about two people learning to accept who they are, discovering that they deserve love, and that the label the world puts on them doesn’t define who they are.
There’s also naked picnics, poetry quoting, and Super Bowl sex.
