Tina Riffey always wanted to be a writer. She started with poetry in grade school and moved to stories by high school. Through a series of moves, she lost those earlier stories, but continued to write down story ideas through the years. She's written two books so far in her Elemental Voice Series and started on her third. In the first Earth Reader she introduced her investigating trio and the alternate world they live in where vampires live openly next door and psychics consult regularly with the police. She lives in Springfield, Missouri with her cat, Toby.
