About Me

tabitha-lord

I currently live in Rhode Island, a few towns away from where I grew up. In addition to my husband and four kids, I also have two spoiled cats and a lovable black lab. My degree is in Classics from College of the Holy Cross. Before becoming a full-time author, I was the middle school Latin teacher and Admissions Director at the Meadowbrook Waldorf School, where I now serve on the Board of Trustees. I'm a true New Englander, therefore an avid Red Sox fan, and I very much appreciate the versatile word “wicked.” 

My first book, Horizon, was released December 1, 2015. It was awarded the Writer's Digest Grand Prize for Self-Published Fiction in 2016, and has also been named a Finalist in the Next Generation Indie Awards and the National Indie Excellence Awards. My short story "Homecoming" appears in the anthology Sirens, published July 2016 by World Weaver Press, and was recently nominated for the Pushcart Prize.

I'm currently hard at work on Horizon's sequel, and hope to have sneak peak chapters and cover art posted soon!
