Fun Facts About Tanya

  1.  I am a California beach girl and country gramma with a hot firefighter IMG_0565 (1)husband. We live on the Central Coast where strawberries grow and sea breezes blow.
  2.  I picked “Deliverance” for our first date. (He married me anyway.)
  3.  Other than my grandkids, Sam Elliott is my favorite anything.  Anson Mount is a close second–especially as Cullen Bohannan.
  4.  Other favorite things: Lake Tahoe, Hallmark movies, Trojan football, Disneyland, and wine tasting.
  5.  My most unfavorite thing are down escalators. 
  6.  I help out at the local horse rescue and am a fervent environmentalist and Defender of Wildlife.
  7.  My latest crush Doc Holliday has a role in OUTLAW HEART.


    Honoring my hero. I highly recommend Mary Doria Russell’s Doc.

  8.   MARRYING MINDA, the tale of a mail-order bride who marries the wrong man, garnered two first-place awards from RWA Chapters. 
  9.   SANCTUARY, whose cowboy hero is a cancer survivor,  received CoffeeTimeRomance’s CTTR Recommended Read Award.
  10.   My college days in Nebraska helped inspire the little town of Paradise, where several of my stories are set. But I got to student-teach in Colorado, my second-favorite state!
  11.   I live the happiest life ever. God is good.

Hubs and me on a wagon train trip around the Tetons. Yee-haw!
