Tonya Royston currently lives in Northern Virginia with her husband, son, two dogs, and two horses. Although she dreamed of writing novels at a young age, she was diverted away from that path years ago and built a successful career as a contracts manager for a defense contractor in the Washington, DC area. She resurrected her dream of writing in 2013 and hasn’t stopped since the first words of The Sunset Trilogy were unleashed. Although her days are still all business, she now devotes her nights, weekends, holidays, snow days, vacations, and any other spare minute she finds to writing. Royston also loves animals and she is planning to support various animal charities across the country through her book sales. More information about Tonya and her upcoming book series can be found at
