A self-proclaimed techie and foodie, Toi Thomas was born in Texas, but considers Virginia to be home. Growing up, Toi had a strong interest in reading fiction and loved to watch movies. Working with computers and cooking lavish meals have become reoccurring pastimes for the former teacher’s assistant turned behavioral therapist, but now Toi wants to entertain the world with her writing.
Toi Thomas writes clean adult nonfiction and fiction in various genres and pens romantic comedy as Glorie Townson. She also writes and illustrates children's book. Visit her at Amazon.com.
Toi Thomas created Carnie the Bookworm to be the mascot of Lit Carnivale, a book fair in the making. Learn more here: LitCarnivale.com

But, since I'm here and have a loving family surrounding me, it's ultimately a story of triumph I'd tell if I decided to use some of that mysterious history in a story. (less)

Toi Thomas Finding one’s purpose is the key to unlocking the joy of life. For when you finally know why you are here, everything else just seems to fall into place.

Toi Thomas I promote books and authors because I think authors should be just as important to the world of entertainment as music groups or movie stars.

Toi Thomas This is my first comment and I'm so happy to announce the winners of my book giveaway. Rachel Mahurin and Crystal Young should be receiving their signed copies of Eternal Curse: Giovanni's Angel this week. Congrats guys and Happy Birthday to me. I have a huge smile on my face knowing I've gotten some cool gifts, some new fans, an author spotlight posted at Ravenz Reviews, and an article being posted later at Morgen Bailey's Writing Blog. Yay for me!
