Tanya’s elementary school aspirations were to become a pediatrician, beautician, or musician. (Yeah. She sort of liked that -cian suffix.) But from very early on, she could be found typing angsty poetry, sassy song lyrics, and outlandish stories on her prized possession: an electric typewriter.
Tanya graduated magna cum laude from Webster University with a BA in English and double minors in Theatre and Scriptwriting. She is currently studying at Goddard College, and expects to finish her MFA in Dramatic Writing in 2017.
She lives in the Midwest and works from her downstairs office (as a writ-ician).

She also works at a university.
In addition, Tanya volunteered as a contributing editor at River Styx literary magazine for several years and is now the production and design editor for The Pitkin Review.
She likes fast roller coasters, spicy Tex-Mex, cheap jewelry, and smart people with a wicked sense of humor. Oh, and Flair felt tip pens. She likes those too.
This is not a Flair felt tip pen.
