My Bio & News:

The Accidental Poet:

Xtina Marie is an avid horror and fiction genre reader, who became a blogger; who became a published poet; who became an editor; who now is a podcaster, and an aspiring novelist—and why not? People love her words.

Her first book of poetry: Dark Musings has received outstanding reviews in addition to being nominated for a Bram Stoker Award for poetry. It is likely she was born to this calling. Writing elaborate twisted tales, to entertain her classmates in middle school, would later lead Xtina to use her poetry as a private emotional outlet in adult life—words she was hesitant to share publicly—but the more she shared, the more accolades her writing received.

Light Musings: The Expanded Edition is ready for publication early in 2018. Later in the year, Xtina’s dark poetry fans will be treated to some of her darkest work ever in her third book, tentatively titled: X. Her first romance erotica novel is well under way but has taken a back seat to an ever-increasing number of commitments.
