T. D. McKinney was born
with eclectic tastes. Author, artist, web designer - those
tastes show in the careers she's chosen.
Growing up on the American Gulf Coast, she gained a great
appreciation for all things Southern and a fascination with what the
community around her termed the War of Northern Aggression.
Frequent trips to New Orleans to visit relatives instilled an early
love for that city and for the Cajun culture. One of her earliest
memories is viewing Mardi Gras parades when she was three years
old. She freely admits that at the tender age of six she fell in
love with both Barnabas Collins of Dark Shadows’ fame and
Jonny Quest’s scientist-father, Benton. Sherlock Holmes
followed soon after as one of the great abiding interests of her
life. A long time fan of science fiction and horror, she met
her husband while selling art at a science
influences doubtless explain a great deal about the author and her
writings. There is very little she doesn’t find interesting whether
it’s art, music, history, vampires, web design, or forensic
science. Everything is there to be explored, investigated, and
attempted at least once. This trait often carries over into her
writing. She loves exploring characters that are not afraid to take
a risk or step outside the constraints of society or family. And if
the character doesn’t want to take that chance, she likes creating
situations that require they do so.
T. D. lives in the Dallas-Fort Worth area of north Texas
with her husband and young daughter. With so many careers, she keeps quite busy. In her spare
time, she shares her husband’s interest in vampires, the internet, science fiction,
collecting swords, and all things Japanese.
