Tia is a Southern California hairstylist, a former English Lit major, and blogger-turned-author. After four years of writing a now-retired personal site, her work has been featured on numerous forums including Open Salon and Hooray Collective. She believes in eyeliner as a defense mechanism, equal rights, and Marc Jacobs. Her favorite things include One Direction, story time, and the overzealous use of punctuation. When not writing and reading, she binge-watches only the best (subjective) TV shows. She lives in California with her husband, daughter, and two dogs.
