The Author

”It is my dream that one day all people will come to their very last moment in this life with a sense of great peace, knowing that they lived the life that they were meant to; that they experienced each moment to the fullest and without regret.” -T.L.Bragg

Tawnya Bragg is an American author and emergency room nurse. She grew up in the mountains of Colorado and later moved to the coast of California. Always drawn to service, she specialized in emergency room, trauma, and critical care nursing environments over the years while she was completing her first memoir, No Angels Here. 

Tawnya enjoys dominating her friends at beach volleyball even though she “never plays” and there was some recent dabbling in Golf & Tennis but she is afraid to make everyone feel bad because she is good at everything she does, when she puts her mind to it (just kidding, she was actually terrible).

An athlete, lifelong learner, seeker of new perspectives, and believer in all things amazing and magical (as long as they are research-based); Tawnya spends her time finding excuses to do her happy dance in public, hug strangers, walk around barefoot, and stare into the ocean contemplating how to make the world a better place.

Tawnya’s greatest joys are found in family, friends, creative exploration, travel, and writing. She lives with her fabulously wonderful and supportive husband and her amazing daughter in beautiful Santa Barbara while she works on her next manuscript.

Be Brave and Oh the places you’ll go...
