Tinthia Clemant was born in Medford, Massachusetts, over sixty years ago. In other words, she’s old! As a child she was happy and lived in a loving home with her three siblings and mother and father. She always wrote. From the time she first picked up a pencil, or perhaps it was a crayon, she wrote. Love stories. Happy stories. Stories about love with happy endings. Her first book was self-published. (She stapled several pages together and presented the book to her mother on Mother’s Day. She was seven.)
As the contemporary women’s fiction/romance genre’s newest author, Tinthia fell in love with love stories when she first learned about true love’s first kiss. That did it for her! Unfortunately, she has yet to find that special kiss. Throwing her arms up in defeat, she decided to write about it and live vicariously through her characters.
Tinthia lives on the banks of the Concord River and spends her time teaching science at a local community college, gardening, painting, feeding her multitude of Mallards (follow her natural history blog at: concordriverlady.com), reading, and, of course, writing about true love.
