ABOUT TINA

"The romance gods have truly gifted us" raves Amazon.com's Romance Editor about the novels of award-winning author Tina St. John. Hailed as "pure gold" (All About Romance) and "among the best of the best" (Oakland Press), this RWA RITA finalist and Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice award recipient quit a full-time corporate job to pursue her dream of becoming a published author.

She sold her first completed manuscript, LORD OF VENGEANCE, and has since gone on to pen several more acclaimed medieval romances for Ballantine Books, including LADY OF VALOR, WHITE LION'S LADY, BLACK LION'S BRIDE, and her upcoming Dragon Chalice medieval/paranormal series, which kicked off in June 2004 with HEART OF THE HUNTER.

A Michigan native and descendant of Mayflower passenger Governor William Bradford, Tina makes her home in coastal New England with her husband, the inspiration for all her heroes and her most devoted fan. The couple are the caretakers of two rescued felines who have trained them to surrender treats, tuna, and belly rubs on command

Tina's novels are published as mass market original paperbacks by Ballantine/Ivy Books (a division of Random House). Literary representation by Karen Solem of Spencerhill Associates.
