Tonya Rice

Romance author, based in Richmond, Virginia

I write contemporary and historical romance. I love writing historical stories because: Research! I was also a participant in the very first year of the University of Virginia Young Writer’s Workshop and have known since those early days that all I ever wanted to do was write and publish stories like Jackie Collins. God-willing, I'm on my way!

I am a native of Richmond, Virginia. My B.A. is from Hollins College and my M.F.A. in Creative Writing (Emphasis in Fiction) is from National University. In addition to the blog, Front Porch, Sweet Tea, and a Pile of Books, I write and manage the classic film blog, Goosepimply All Over. I am also a member of James River Writers. I live in Virginia with my family, which includes our cats with whom I share my office and ultimately my desk.

When I'm not writing, reading or coding, I'm happy watching classic movies, spending time with my family, powerwalking, swinging at a driving range, doing some home decorating, or watching Steelers football.
