Tanquary studied creative writing at Knox College, where she graduated from in 2010. At Knox College, she was listed as a distinguished student on the Dean's List and the President’s Circle. After attaining her degree, Tanquary taught English as a Foreign Language to middle school students in the Gunma Prefecture of Japan.
In college, Tanquary wrote several short stories for adults. She has always been interested in Japanese folklore, which stimulated the concept for her debut novel, a juvenile fiction book titled The Night Parade. Soon after its January 2016 release, the author stated that she plans to release a new middle-grade series as well as an unrelated fantasy novel for adults.
