About

Tina Martin is the award-winning, USA Today Bestselling Author and Amazon Bestselling author of over 75 romantic suspense titles including novels, novellas and a few short stories. She self-publishes her own books. She’s been writing since 2007. She published her first novel, Secrets On Lake Drive, in July 2010. 

After Secrets On Lake Drive came a few other standalone novels, then she got into writing series: The Accidental Series, The Champion Brothers Series, Dying To Love Her Series, Mine By Default Mini-Series, A Lennox in Love Series, The Blackstone Family Series and The Marriage Chronicles.

In 2017, her novel, Baked With Love, from a new series – The Boardwalk Bakery Romance Series – won Book of the Year. Following The Boardwalk Bakery Series came a spinoff series of St. Claire novels – Royal, Ramsey, Romulus and Regal. In 2019, the series expanded to a new set of characters, the next book titled, Magnus, published in January 2019, Monty published June 2019 and Major December 2020. Magnus, Monty and Major were all Amazon #1 New Releases! In February 2021, her novels, Major and How To Love Me were featured in Kindle Exclusives: Riveting Fiction by Black Authors for Black History Month.

In her work, she likes to craft real-life issues with the primary focus on romance and suspense. Additionally, she likes to push the limits of fiction to create the not-so-typical stories. She likes storylines ranging from finding love unexpectedly, discovering love even while in the face of adversity and alpha male heroes who don’t let anything stand in the way of their true love.

When she's not writing, Tina loves traveling, being outdoors, gardening and running.

She released her newest work, The Weekend (A Lennox in Love, Book 7) on October 22, 2021.
