Tina Traverse


Tina Traverse is a passionate writer, avid reader, a self proclaimed Autism Warrior Mom and Proud Newfie Gal.

Tina hails from a quaint little hamlet on a quaint little island known as Canada’s youngest province, Newfoundland. The desire for writing came at an early age when she wrote her own spin on the Bible’s Good Samaritan story for her third grade class. When she fell off the traditional publishing path, Tina stumbled onto an exciting new path called, self-publishing. It’s been an thrilling journey, publishing not only her own work, but being a part of numerous anthologies.

In her spare time, Tina enjoys leisurely strolls in the great outdoors, playing Thomas the Tank Engine with her youngest son and being beat at Wii bowling by her teenage son.

Tina lives with her husband of too many years to count, in a scenic town by the bay.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. It was a third-grade assignment. My own personal twist on the bible's good samaritan story. I enjoyed writing the story and became hooked! I was eight and haven't stopped writing since​.
What is your writing process?
When a story idea pops into my imagination, I will take a few days and work the details in my mind first. Forming the characters, places, plot and dialogue​ in my head like it was a movie, then I will sit at the computer and write the first draft. Once the story is complete, I will take a break for a few days before returning and editing several drafts before sending it manuscript to my editor.
