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.

Darkest Sunlight, her third poetic narrative, has been published just in time for the holidays by HellBound Books. “This came as something of a surprise as they have stated they are moving away from poetry. I consider myself fortunate to have made the cut.”

Light Musings: The Revised & Expanded Edition, released earlier this year, has met with much love from reviewers.  “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 Xtina 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.

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