THE SHORT(EST) VERSION
My full-time job is to plot murders and mysteries while weaving sexual tension, romance, and can't-live-without-you love in between. If you want the slightly more professional bio, scroll down! If not here's some abbreviated facts for you about this cat-loving author.
My first published book: MANHUNT! It was published by Harlequin Books under their Intrigue line.
My current home: Alabama! Yes, the humidity is worse than you think.
My partner in crime: Husband Tyler! Yes, we have the same name.
My children: A slew of cats. A. Slew.
My guilty pleasures: Coffee, reading, coffee, video games, sweet tea, coffee, and Netflix. Also, coffee. I may have a problem.
My favorite phrase: "It's fine!" It can be found in every book I write!
THE LONG(EST) VERSION
Tyler Anne Snell writes a little bit of everything but has a soft spot for thrillers and mysteries filled with sexual tension. Here's a quick rundown to get to know her!
Her love for writing started with the video game Zelda and Author Madeleine L’Engle’s Time Quartet series and has snowballed out of control ever since. She has never wanted to be anything other than an author (aside from a real life Final Fantasy character or Jackie Chan’s best friend and sparring buddy) and if you asked her what is her favorite activity other than writing, she would point to her filled-to-the-brim bookcase.
Tyler holds a B.S. degree in Design, Technology & Industry with a creative writing minor, which allowed her to become a freelance designer, social media manager, and blogger—a vocation that kept her fed while writing on the side—until she was able to write full time.
Like most writers, Tyler’s procrastination has been great—leaving three books unfinished until the So You Think You Can Write 2013 contest. She placed in the Top 50 out of 650+ entries worldwide. The experience lit a fire under her backside and, after some back and forth with a wonderful Harlequin editor named Allison, she was asked to join the Harlequin Intrigue family!
If you asked Tyler what her favorite book is she’d look off into space for a good few minutes before listing off at least ten. Her favorite movies aren’t as hard to think through with Howl’s Moving Castle, Big Trouble In Little China, Tommy Boy, Rumble in the Bronx (hey, Jackie!), and Jurassic Park in a constant hold for the top. She has no problem professing her love for Authors Madeleine L’Engle, Neil Gaiman, Daniel O’Malley, Charlaine Harris, Janet Evanovich, and friends C. Elizabeth Vescio and Rebekah Crane. She also hasn't met a Harlequin Intrigue author she didn't like!
When she isn’t writing or reading, Tyler is playing video games with her same-named husband or stuck in the endless void known as Pinterest. All while being logged into Facebook.
She used to share a lifestyle and inspiration blog (Almost There) with the lovely Holli Anne and now has a Twitter that’s often filled with coffee-related posts.
Tyler lives in Alabama with her husband (also named Tyler) and their three mini lions.
