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.

Light Musings: The Revised & Expanded Edition e-book is now LIVE!

“The paperback version should be corrected on amazon soon. It took a long time to get this book produced with the same care that Dark Musings received. I am grateful to HellBound Books for working with me to produce a book I am proud of.”

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.

Later in the year, both Xtina’s dark and light poetry fans will be treated to something very special in her third book, tentatively titled, Darkest Sunlight. It will explore the extremes as only Xtina can.

Her first romance erotica novel is well under way but has taken a back seat to an ever-increasing number of commitments.
