A Washington convert, Tina has been writing since she learned her letters. She won awards in school but gave up writing when she moved to Washington in 1994. It wasn’t until the crippling crash in 2009 that she started to write again, having been laid off by her work. Since then she’s written two novels and a flotilla of short stories, and is working on her next novel while going to school. Her nine-year-old son is her biggest diversion from her work, and her favorite one as well. When she’s not reading, she’s out hunting for Pokemon with her son and husband. She has a blog at http://tinashelton.com.
