Author Biography

Tara Alemany defies a simple definition. She is a multi-award winning author, speaker, business consultant and publisher, as well as a serial entrepreneur.

Although she’s started many businesses during her career, her favorite by far is Emerald Lake Books, which she co-owns with her best friend, Mark Gerber. This hybrid publishing company provides a unique blend of business coaching with publishing to help its authors succeed, whether it’s their first book or their fiftieth! Emerald Lake Books specializes in working with positive people who have an engaging, exciting or entertaining message to share with the world.

Using a unique, goal-oriented approach to publishing, Tara combines her business and publishing knowledge to help her authors set and attain goals for their readers, their brands and their books.

And many of those books have gone on to win international awards and recognition, thanks to Emerald Lake’s “Publish with a Purpose” framework.

Tara’s latest book, "Publish with Purpose," reveals the unique process developed by Emerald Lake Books to help their authors set and attain their own goals.

In addition to publishing, consulting, writing and speaking, Tara serves on the Board of Directors for a Christian writers’ critique group, acting as both president and chaplain of the group. In her spare time, she is a winemaker, a military Mom to 2 kids (one of each), step-Mom to 1 lovable mutt and is owned by a black cat.

This is a great book. Tara’s books are always enlightening. Even though I like to think I am well-read, I always learn new things or new ways of doing them! Tara has an authentic voice and I wish I had found her books earlier in my career. They would have saved me a lot of time, money, and headaches! Lol.
