Tonia Marie Harris resides in south-central Illinois with her husband, three children, and three rescue animals. She lives and writes happily (albeit frantically) among chaos, poetry, and books. Her muse is a cross-dressing goblin with a penchant for rum and Kafka novels.

She is President of WME Community Works, a non-profit organization that spearheaded the recent development of a grassroots library that serves her village and the surrounding communities.

Her latest work-in-progress is a dark fairy tale for adults, which tells the story of twin sisters who wake an evil kingdom from slumber. In addition to working on novels, Tonia writes for magazines and websites, and can be found spinning verse at art and music festivals.

Her work has appeared in Twice Upon A Time, a collection of reimagined fairy tales, Hand/Eye Magazine, Mash Stories, Silver Birch Press, and various anthologies.

Chocolate is her kryptonite.
