Tonya is moved by humor and narratives that have an effect on readers. She’s enthusiastic about crafting stories with beguiling characters, adding dashes of snappy humor, and engaging dialogue that leaves her fingerprint on each page.
From Tonya’s favorite porch chair gazing at a tranquil mountain lake, came the nudge to write her first novel, and from her beach chair she got the idea for a cozy series. She confesses a newfound respect for a chair’s ability to motivate a writer. She now chases her writing joy from the mountains to the seashore.
Her fiction and non-fiction stories are published in numerous anthologies, e-zines, local press, and literary magazines. She is a member of Poets and Writers.
