Tinsley Sellers grew up in Chicago, spending her summers with her grandparents in a tiny town a lot like Beckley, Michigan. After college at Michigan State and grad school at Arizona State, Tinsley lived in Scottsdale, Arizona, followed by a stint in Washington State. She finally found her home in Arkansas, where she has resided for long enough to know that "y'all" is singular, "all y'all" is plural, and "Bless your heart" is not a blessing. She is married to an amazing, supportive (and handsome!) man, with whom she has rescued three dogs and two cats. When she's not writing, she teaches physics and engineering at the local university. She enjoys fast cars and loud music more than she should, and wouldn't say no to a nip of fine whisky.
