Tink starting writing at the age of 10. Then, she fell into a coma until the age of 40. She woke up when her second child was diagnosed with Autism. The fairy muse that lived inside poked her heart until Tink cried out and put pen to paper. That was five years ago. After many "thanks, but no thanks" slips piled up, the Fifth Di accepted her poem "Uncovered" for publication, scheduled for October 2002. "An Odd Splishy Day" was subsequently magazine published by Aoife's Kiss in October 2003. Tink wrote a book about her son Ben and another side of special needs children. The work explores spirituality, communication, and how some autie children speak without making a sound. It is published thanks to Booklocker and the B. A. Bear Autism Foundation. The title is "Mommy! Ben Made The Cake Fly!" (Autistic Children and Paranormal Communication.) She is writing a series of metaphysical fiction books for older children. The Bear Path Series will begin with "The Journey." Her next nonfiction work is titled "God Is A Fairy," and is slated for publication October 2003. A fiction novel in progress is "Mother Gorda's Oasis," (or maybe even Big Mama's House) based on psychic Keeley Gorda's life and investigative work with local police agencies.
Interests: Metaphysics, camping, figuring out what makes those itchy little skin bumps pop out for no apparent reason. Facilitated communication in autism.
