Tina Boltinghouse


I first started writing stories to entertain my younger sister who was battling scarlet fever. At the age of thirteen I informed my mother that I wanted to be a published author. Although I wrote off and on throughout junior high and high school, I didn’t get serious about my writing until after my two sons were grown and gone. Shortly after Hurricane Katrina, I wrote a short story centered on that event. My family and friends encouraged me to submit it for publication and I entered into a local writing contest. My dream of publication came true when my first place winning story was published in the local paper.
In 2012 I submitted a novelette to Amazon for publication as an e-book. “The Piano”, a Christmas novella. It is not only available through Smashwords for virtually all e-readers.

My husband and I live in northeast Missouri with a view of the Mississippi River. I live with two furry people of the canine variety and am active in our local theatre group. You can reach me through my website at tinaboltinghouse.com. I would love to hear from you.
