IN THE PRESS
Harley's voice is earthy, colloquial, and wise, her first-person narration vivid and sometimes funny. Readers will resonate with this gritty, expletive-laced, fast-paced narrative about a strong young woman trying to come to terms with great loss.
The Long Ride Home
(on Beauty of the Broken)
SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
Tawni’s talent would be exasperating if I didn’t know how seriously she takes her craft, how dedicated she is to art and the imagination.
If you follow Tawni on Facebook or meet her for the first time, you might think this was merely a woman who stays up late writing inspiring messages about love, who stumbles through life having visions, and who probably loses several possessions every time she passes through an airport. But we writers, well, we have a kind of knack for spotting a person’s other side, if they have one. If you listen to Tawni talk, you’ll quickly see how seriously she takes her work, her investigation of the world around her, and her artistic vocation. When it’s time to write, she writes.
She’s someone the world should be hearing more of.

The Incompetent Writer
Tawni was born to a couple of uber-smart-hippies-turned-preachers who took her to a deserted New Mexico mountain when she was four. She had no television and very little access to modern media, but she and her big brother would often wander to the library of a nearby abandoned hippie commune and “borrow” books. The kids ran around naked a lot. Tawni has yet to break the habit.
The family raised all their own food, so Tawni could tell you a thing or two about tomato-worm-induced trauma.
