Houston Author Event Spotlight: Tara Sivec

Tara Sivec is a USA Today best-selling author, wife, mother, chauffeur, maid, short-order cook, baby-sitter, and sarcasm expert. She lives in Ohio with her husband and two children and looks forward to the day when they all three of them become adults and move out. 

After working in the brokerage business for fourteen years, Tara decided to pick up a pen and write instead of shoving it in her eye out of boredom. She is the author of the Playing with Fire series and the Chocolate Lovers series. Her novel Seduction and Snacks won first place in the Indie Romance Convention Reader’s Choice Awards 2013 for Best Indie First Book.

In her spare time, Tara loves to dream about all of the baking she’ll do and naps she’ll take when she ever gets spare time.

Tara also writes under the pen name T.E. Sivec.  Check out the page for T.E. Sivec for more information.

My mom had some friends in town this weekend and so I got to go with her to take her friend Ms. Tara to the airport. She was really funny. And she even wrote a book about My Little Ponies, which is my favorite thing ever right now. While we were waiting on Ms. Tara to come down to the lobby, my mom and I went walking by the waterway in The Woodlands. Here are some pictures of me showing her my dancing moves. I was a little cold, so I had to keep moving.

Walk like an Egyptian
A little YMCA
This is me just looking cute
When Ms. Tara came down to see us, the first thing she said was "Where is Emmy? Oh my god, there she is...the famous Emmy!"  Every time I go with my mom somewhere, everyone seems to know me. So I guess that makes me famous. When my mom came home on Saturday night she had a book from Ms. Tara that had a My Little Pony on the front cover and I tried to steal it from her. My mom said that I could read it in about 10 years! What's the deal with that? Then she told me that the story was about a BOY who likes My Little Pony! That's just weird. So then I decided to protest the book. This would never happen! I try to get my friends who are boys to play with me and they go running.

So as you can see from this photo...the protest went well. My sign says "Down with Bronies" (that's what my mom said boys who like My Little Ponies are called). I covered my face so Ms. Tara wouldn't figure out it was me. I think the protest was a success.
As we were leaving the hotel, I noticed they had this cool looking throne. My mom said it wasn't a throne but a place you sit to get your shoes shined. I still say it was a throne they brought in just for me. See I even have my princess wave down pat.

We were going to take a walk down the waterway but it started raining and so we decided to go and get something to eat. We went to this really cool place called the Cheesecake Factory. 

Since my mom loves to take pictures and then show them to everyone in the world. She showed Ms. Tara the picture of my protest and she put two and two together and noticed I was wearing the same shirt! My mom totally ratted me out. Good thing Ms. Tara likes me. She just gave me a big hug and let me play on her iPad instead. She even bought me a big huge piece of Chocolate Cheesecake. I think she may be the best person in the whole wide world. 

 Then Ms. Tara was talking to my mom about a Moxie doll that comes with a unicorn that poops rainbows! I have to have this doll. Like now! I tried to talk my mom into buying one for me and then when she said no, I tried to convince Ms. Tara to give me her doll - but she said no too. Darn! Hopefully the Easter Bunny will bring one for me. Otherwise I may have to give up a trip to The American Girl Doll Store, so I can get my hands on one of these. I LOVE UNICORNS!!! I may have been a little mean and not shared my umbrella with Ms. Tara over this. 

My second protest of the day... I need a UNICORN!!
I had a fun time with Ms. Tara and my mom. I am so happy that I get to go with her to different things and have fun.

  1. I love Tara's books & loved the "guest post" Emmy! ;)

    I also gave a little squee when I read about the Moxie doll with the rainbow pooping unicorn because I'm the one that posted it to Tara's page & introduced her to it :)

    Great post Becca! Tara is one of my new must read authors...can't wait to see what she releases next!
