Tanya Eby was born in Lansing, Michigan during the decade of Disco; she believes this little detail has shaped much of her existence. She has a B.A. in English Language & Literature from Grand Valley State University and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from the University of Southern Maine.
Tanya has had a series of jobs in everything from: clerk for one day at Victoria's Secret, waitress for seven years, assistant at Carnegie Hall for nine months, development coordinator for two years, voice over performer for ten years and writer for as long as she can remember. She is obsessed with cooking magazines ('cooking' as an adjective here and not actually 'cooking' the magazines) and attempts a new recipe every week. She has two quirky children, a tiki-obsessed husband, and lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
