After writing her first novel in fifth grade--the first page of which was entirely in Pig Latin--Trisha Bartle spent much of her life ensconced in words. Though she came out of college with a degree in video game development, her eye was always on writing. She has won various awards for her fiction, including first place in the Creative Quill writing contest for her short story, "The Walk". Over the last few years, she's dedicated her time to working on her beauty blog, MakeupFiles.com, and writing books about beauty. She's currently in the editing stages of her first official novel as an adult. Trisha Bartle resides amidst the mountains of Montana.
