From this, her monthly "Coming Clean" and "Quick Fixes" columns were born. "Coming Clean" was among the Home Section's most popular columns. "Mrs. Clean Jeans' Housekeeping with Kids" quickly followed Tara's first book "Simplify Your Household".
Tara lives and writes in Los Angeles, California, and is always on the lookout
for great new ways to simplify family living, and innovative new
products and cleaning and organizing strategies to help make living easier.
Her goal is to have an organized, clean life at home - so she and her family can enjoy life outside of it together as often as possible.
