#AuthorLife with Hope Tarr




After a day of chasing make believe characters around the keyboard, even the most dedicated novelist needs to hang up her work-in-progress and reenter #RL. Here’s my basic evening routine for doing just that.

  1. I go for a run. Much as I like to imagine myself as an awesome Amazon warrior…




… this is probably a lot closer to the truth.



  1. Back home and showered, I pour a glass o’ vino.




  1. Of course it’s also important to build in playtime with the little ones.



  1. And then there’s dinner to make.




  1. And tv to watch.


My current obsessions include Westworld, Barry, and Divorce. Also super excited for Younger to come back on.




Snooze time.




Until next time…

Wishing you a summer filled with fairy tale dreams come true!

Manhattan magazine editor Macie Graham always gets her story—and she’ll do anything to uncover the dirt on famous conservative radio personality Ross Mannon. After he smears her article on his show, nearly costing Macie her job, she devises a plan to masquerade as a modern-day Cinderella and get her revenge on the infuriating Texan.

All Ross wants is a woman with old-fashioned values to be his housekeeper and role model for his troubled teenage daughter. When the perfect woman shows up, Ross is relieved—until he finds himself drawn to his gorgeous, red-stiletto-wearing new employee. “Martha Jane” is opinionated and sexy, and Ross is intrigued…and more than a little turned on.

Macie thought Operation Cinderella was foolproof, but Ross, with his rugged good looks and southern charm, proves to be as perfect behind-the-scenes as he does in public. But when she finally uncovers a secret that could destroy Ross’s reputation, she faces losing her job or losing the fairy-tale ending she didn’t even know she wanted.
