My name is Tina Roye, and I have been writing stories since I was twelve years old. I found out that being a writer was a real job when I read R.A. Salvatore’s The Dark Elf Trilogy. My first two novels were completed when I was thirteen in a notebook. My favorite genres to write in are Paranormal Romance, Fantasy, and Erotica set in our world. I live with my fiance and our black cat Onyx, who listens and reads my writing no matter how maddening I can be and gives me encouragement when I am down.

grew up very ill, so I spent a great deal of my life alone, wandering around in my head. Because I wasn’t exposed to the same influences as others, I don’t fit in or share the same values with the general populace. What is fantastic, though, is that lack of exposure left the core of my childhood ideals intact, and allows me the full advantage of embracing them. Being sick grants me the time to pursue my interests, and develop a wealth of passions that I would have never thought. I get to master fields and believe in fairies!
I grew up on Long Island, NY and was introduced to Mr. Greenwood’s work, via D&D campaign settings, through my older brother. I started reading fantasy in my teens and moved on to science fiction afterward. I’ve loved storytelling for most of my years and began putting my own RPG adventures together once I’d found some proper misfits to game with in high school. Since then, I’ve been building a warehouse of ideas and trying to improve my writing.
I live and work in Calcutta, a city in the eastern part of India. In my day job, I am an instructional designer at IBM. I specialize in copy-editing and proof-reading. In my spare time, I dream up imaginary worlds and write comic books and short stories set in those worlds. I like espionage, action-adventure, sword-and-sorcery, steampunk, and espionage genres. Some of my favorites – across genres and mediums – are: The Dinosaur Lords by Victor Milán, Velvet and Sleeper by Ed Brubaker, the Pax Britannia series from Abaddon Books, Nikolai Dante by Robbie Morrison, and The Iron Assassin by Ed Greenwood.
From crushing rocks in a Slate Mine to Air Traffic Control, I have lived the life of gypsy and rogue; one summer even joining the elite ranks of Texas Ranger (Park Ranger, but we won’t quibble about the exactitudes). Reading, writing, and craft of various kinds has been the steady drumbeat throughout. I am inspired by an eclectic variety of music, authors, podcasts, and shiny things the world throws in my path. I continue to explore the many facets of the world at his small farm in the foothills of Northern California’s gold country with my wife and four children.
