     Tanya M. Saldana was born on a hot summer day on July 12, (a long time ago. <wink>) in Chicago, IL and grew up in Harvey, IL, a small suburban town. It has to be said that it has never rained on July 12th, at least where ever she is. <wink> The youngest of four, she spent a lot of time entertaining herself with either her imagination, skating in her backyard, or in front of the television especially during the bitter cold winter.
     She now resides in Southern California with her wonderful husband, Antoine Cook, along with their German Shepherd, Scout. When she's not writing, she likes to spend time with her husband and take Scout for long walks.

     She strongly believes that no matter what challenges life may bring us, if we continue to trust God and persevere, we will make it through. God is ALWAYS with us! Nothing is bigger than God. 
     Although she's always loved writing, she attended California State University, Long Beach where she earned a BS in Nutrition & Dietetics. Her first book, A LOVE UNCOMMON, was written while coping with a tragic life changing event. It was published in December 2012. The first book of her new book series, AUTUMN MOON, will be available this coming fall. Tanya is also a playwright. Her plays can be seen at least twice a year in various theaters and auditoriums in the Inland Empire.
