Born in Denver, CO, Tanya has lived all over the country as the result of a wandering and restless soul.

Tanya was first published at age 13, and has been hungry for writing ever since. Tanya loves all things in the horror genre, however she struggles with the boring, but overly accepted concept that good must always triumph over evil. For in life it goes either way as evident by, well, life. She just published her second novel.

She lives with her cranky, eclectic muse and a tortoiseshell tabby with enormous back feet and personality to spare, named Juliet.

Whatever song goes through my mind, because there is always a song in there. I may have to get up and go cook dinner or stop and go play a game, but what really clears out the cobwebs is the song. If a upbeat happy song pops in my head, I write a light scene and it just hops from my fingers onto the keys and leaps out onto the page. If it is a sad song, it bleeds from my heart, weeps through my fingers and gathers onto the page. The song always gets me writing again. Try it sometime, you have nothing to lose and you always get the pleasure of singing the song.(less)
