Taryn Souders Biographical Picture
Taryn Souders has a degree in elementary education with a specialization in mathematics from the University of North Texas. She was inspired to become a math teacher because of the apprehension and uneasiness she experienced as a child learning math. Her goal in writing Whole-y Cow! Fractions Are Fun was to put a humorous spin on fractions that would help kids just have fun with them.

Though no longer teaching, Taryn has spoken at the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the Florida Council of Teachers of Mathematics, and various state reading associations. She continues to write books and has a new release scheduled for Fall 2015 titled Dead Possums Are Fair Game (Ages 8-12).

Taryn currently resides in Winter Park, Florida with her husband and their three children.
