Daryl Glinn Tanner

Daryl Glinn Tanner received her Master's degree in Literature and decided to turn her memories of a turbulent childhood and the spiritual remedy she found in nature into her first novel, "What Feeds the Heart".  Through the journey of writing, she opened her own beauty salon, FreshHair, and then developed "Divine Response" a natural hair and skin care line containing such a secret grouping of herbs that she patented the product.  "Honoring the natural world is ingrained in who I am.  Plants are a kindred spirit that I love."  In both her entrepreneurial life and her works as an author, Daryl is dedicated to nature and all things healhty for the body, mind, and spirit.
