Tina Vaughn is an award-winning journalist and romance author who's always dreamed of being a writer. As a toddler, she pretended to be Lois Lane. While in elementary school, she wrote her friends' love letters to their boyfriends in exchange for Mickey Mouse ice cream bars. In high school, she scribbled her first romance in a spiral notebook. Fast forward fifteen years... Tina is the editor of a community newspaper, which provides plenty of inspiration for the "small town, big scandal" romances she loves to write. She lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia with her husband and daughter, and is known for commemorating milestones with silver jewelry, tattoos and/or ice cream.
