This love grew into a passionate affair and has been ongoing for thirty years; and there are no signs of it waning.
Though, she admits, when she was pregnant with her son Christian, the affair cooled.
Tina’s desire to write came calling once again when she needed to find a way to cope with heartbreaking news.
Christian was diagnosed with autism in 2010.
Her method of coping was to write a story about his journey called Forever, Christian.
Tina likes to joke that a girl can only write about real life for so long without jumping back into the world of make believe.
She loves to venture into the world of the supernatural; vampires and witches are her favourite!
Tina enjoys all sorts of vampires but admits that she is fascinated with the modern romantic vampire (think Twilight and The Vampire Diaries).
She is currently working on a vampire series based on her first published book, Destiny of The Vampire and has other projects in the works.
When Tina is not at the computer creating her exciting, magical worlds, she is kept on her toes by her two sons, Christian and Brandon.
Sometimes the author manages to curl up in her favourite chair with a good book.
First the obligatory disclaimers. Yes, I received an ARC of the book in my blog tour materials. Yes, I am acquainted with the author and rather like her and her work. However, the review is 100% non-biased by those things. I thoroughly enjoyed the story! As a reader of the original version Destiny of The Vampire, I was excited to see that some of those unique elements carried over into this new version. For instance, a witch with a mysteriously powerful heart. However, I was also excited to see that the characters were fleshed out more than in the original and offer new dynamics. Tina has a very interesting take on the origin of the vampire and how they were created. The twin vampires in this book are not your regular run of the mill vampires. Sorry, you have to read it to find out why!
The only draw back to this story is that it is a tad short in my opinion. It doesn’t end all “cliff-hangery” but you can tell this is intended to be a series and that you have only scratched the surface of the enigma that Tina is weaving in her story. Other than a few typos and getting used to some of the regional speak there isn’t much I could ask the author to improve upon. She has done a wonderful job re-inventing her original ideas into something new and fresh. I personally cannot wait to see what happens in the subsequent books. If you are looking for a new take on vampires and witches with a hint of The Vampire Diaries then Covet is for you! (4 stars out of 5)
