Tara R. 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 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 (April 2019), 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), and is owned by a black cat.
