A Bit About Taryn

My Story

I'm the author of both romantic suspense and young adult novels. First published by Pan Macmillan and Skyhorse Publishing, I found myself dwelling inside my lifelong dream. I recently moved from the beach to the city with a family that includes teen children and a highly-strung dog who loves cheese. I've resided on four continents and my job experience has been ... interesting: an advertising sales rep, a ski chalet chef, a late night news reader for the BBC and the CEO of an internet company, but writing is my true love. I'm also about halfway through my PhD in Creative Writing while tutoring undergraduates. When I'm not writing or teaching, I'm training for triathlons in the hope this will compensate for spending ten hours a day sitting on my tushie.

Becoming Sienna

A Romantic Suspense Novella - free for a limited time.

Three’s a crowd, especially when one is a stalker…


Sienna Chase is having the worst day of her adult life - kicked out of her nursing program, dumped by her boyfriend and, to top it off, followed home by creepy Dr. Charles Allerton.


Flying back to her parents’ home on Cape Cod to take stock of her life ends up triggering the trauma of her sister’s death twenty years earlier. Thank goodness for Blue Rafter, the boy she gave her first kiss to at the age of eight. He’s all grown up and their chemistry is instant.


Except Dr. Allerton turns up, scaring her with frightening gifts and messages, and Sienna needs to figure out why she’s hiding evidence to protect him. 


The police don’t take her seriously. Her parents think she’s drinking too much to numb her memories. Her only ally is

Blue . . . and he’s trying to save her from herself. U


Until Dr. Allerton’s final gift . . . 

Becoming Sienna by T.M. Bashford

Bittersweet and definitely left me wanting more... This was a really interesting take on a stalker- themed story – Allyssa O’Brien, Goodreads Reviewer and Between the Spine Blog

I absolutely loved the storyline…We see growth in Sienna, and the gradual peeling back of her story with her sister Keely was masterfully done. Laura Hockley, Romance Beta Reader

Visual,  colorful and emotional…the story is captivating right from the start… Once I started reading I didn't want to put it down.
