Tina is the author of Burn Before Reading, an LGBT coming of age novel. She once won a poetry award in middle school and has been coasting ever since. When she’s not reading or writing, you can find her singing ‘80s power ballads. Tina’s a graduate of the Rosen College of Hospitality Management at the University of Central Florida. She also spent time at Hollins University (where she played on the tennis team) and West Virginia University because she’s a little indecisive. Currently, Tina is living in Southern California so she can drink iced coffee year-round. At any given moment, she’s probably listening to Bruce Springsteen. Find Tina on Twitter @captainameripug.
