TW Colvin

Biography

I was born a southern girl, raised in Michigan and now call the south home again. Here in peaceful Helena, Alabama, I am a supermom & army wife, V.P. of finance for my home, a puppy wrangler and fulltime employee for an insurance company. And somewhere in all of that I find a few minutes to myself to write, which is something that I absolutely love to do. I have even gone as far as piecing together stories and inspirational writings from text messages and social media posts (don't judge me! LOL). Despite wearing several hats I am more focused than ever on my passion for writing.

Fun Facts about me:
*I absolutely love the fact that my office is a fortress that the kids and puppy cannot penetrate
*I often find stories and poems in old emails, on napkins in my desk drawers and as notes on my smartphone that I have forgotten about.
*I sometimes sneak the puppy in my office because she is less distracting than the children
*If I were a muppet I would be Ms. Piggy cause she's a classy dame
*My favorite things to do are writing, listening to music and eating.
*I started writing poetry when I was 13 years old
*My oldest daughter inherited my love for writing and the youngest my love for music
*Every time I watch Shag: The Movie it's like the first time
*My family does the best car concerts in the south (even though the hubby may disagree)

I completed my first novel Dark Princess in January 2009 and it is finally be available to the public!

Smashwords Interview

How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Finding the right book for the moment is like finding the perfect shoe for a special occasion. Word of mouth has been my primary method of finding new and interesting stories to read. Book retailer suggestions are another discovery tool that has taken me to some pretty interesting worlds.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I do! It was a dreadful story that I wrote when I was in high school (many moon ago). The characters had awful names and the dialogue was dreadful, but the tension was decent. I actually still have it in my office today, but I would be mortified if anyone ever read it.
