At the age of four, Tina’s mother recorded her telling a story of an unfortunate princess. Her love of storytelling has not diminished with time and Tina takes great pleasure in creating fantasy worlds and life-like characters.
She’s the mother of three children, one with special needs. Other than writing, she enjoys working in her flowerbeds, attending renaissance festivals and sewing costumes. She also admits to being a geek in training. ;o)
