Tina Shelton

Biography

Born in Wyoming, Tina was forcibly exiled when she refused to learn the secrets of how to Wyom. Since then, she's been living as an outcast in Washington State, seeking refuge and a power outlet to call her own. She found herself attracted to the unusual plumage of artists and Goths, and this combination could possibly have been the foundation of her strange and powerful urges to write. Being a creative is never easy, however, and it wasn't until 2009 when she began to take her writing seriously.
Now you’re all in for it.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Gillette, Wyoming and it was quite influential to my writing. Many times my family would take car trips, and I would look out the window and imagine being on an alien landscape, or seeing fabulous animals, whatever my brain would find entertaining. I often traveled with a pen and notebook, so that I could capture these ideas.
When did you first start writing?
I was an avid writer from the time I was a young child. I grasped letters very quickly and could read by the time I was four. I was quiet and awkward as a child, so I had a lot of time to spend on inventing stories. When I first moved to Washington state, I met people who were like me, and I spent a lot of time online gaming but never really settling down to a cohesive story. I didn't start taking writing seriously until 2009, when I was laid off during the economic downswing. I had a small child and a lot of time on my hands, and I wrote two novels back to back inside of three months.
