After receiving her BA in English from Virginia Commonwealth University, life swept Tina Sears away from writing. She worked as an Evidence Photographer for the FBI, a Medical Photographer and a Dance Instructor. But it was during her time as contributing writer for The Fredericksburg Times that led her back to her passion for writing. So she enrolled in the Creative writing program at Southern New Hampshire University where she received her MFA in Fiction. She lives with her wife Katie in Virginia, who has always nurtured her dream to become an author.
