In March 2005, inspired by a friend who had self-published a fantasy novel, I self-published my first novel, Silver and Blood, and a short-story collection, Tellers of Tales. Silver and Blood was the first book in a fantasy series, which continued with River's End (September 2005), The Throne of the Sun (March 2006), Return to Dawn (September 2006) and Dreams of Darkness (March 2007). My sixth novel, a YA/sci-fi novel called Cherish the Fire, was published in April 2010, followed by a second short-story collection called Unlikely Muses, published in October 2011. In spring 2013 I published a new edition of Unlikely Muses which incorporated some of the stories from Tellers of Tales, and in fall 2013 I published my oldest novel, an adventure called The Time of the Wolf. All of my books were self-published online through Lulu, and they're available in paperback and ebook formats on the Lulu, Amazon and Barnes & Noble sites.

I can be found on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook and Goodreads as either hrtsmom or Trina Talma/Trina L. Talma. I also have a page on Patreon!
