About Me

Tina Whittle’s Tai Randolph/Trey Seaver mysteries — featuring intrepid gunshop owner Tai and her corporate security agent partner Trey — have garnered starred reviews in Kirkus, Publisher’s Weekly, Booklist, and Library Journal. Published by Poisoned Pen Press, this Atlanta-based series debuted with The Dangerous Edge of Things, followed by Darker Than Any Shadow, Blood, Ash and Bone, and Deeper Than the Grave. The fifth book — Reckoning and Ruin — is scheduled for an April 2016 release.

Her short fiction has appeared in The Savannah Literary Journal, Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine, and Gulf Stream, which selected her story “Lost Causes and Other Reasons to Live” as the 2004 winner of their Mystery Fiction contest. A two-time nominee for Georgia Author of the Year, Tina enjoys golf, sushi, tarot cards, and spending time with her family (one husband, one daughter, one neurotic Maltese and two bossy chickens).

I'm also proud to be a member of both Low Country Sisters in Crime in Savannah and the Sisters in Crime Atlanta Chapter, regional chapters of Sisters in Crime, a national organization whose mission is to promote the advancement, recognition, and professional development of women crime writers. Our vision statement: Serve as the voice for excellence & diversity in crime writing.

Sisters in Crime was founded by Sara Paretsky and a group of women at the 1986 Bouchercon in Baltimore. It currently has over 3600 members in 48 chapters world-wide, offering networking, advice, and support to mystery authors. We are authors, readers, publishers, agents, booksellers and librarians bound by our affection for the mystery genre and our support of women (and men) who write crime fiction and non-fiction.
