Tanya Nellestein has been recreating the fruits of her overactive imagination on paper since she was a child. She is an avid reader, writer, experience enthusiast, outstanding car vocalist, and Queen of fancy dress. Tanya writes gut-churning Viking romance, romantic suspense and crime/mystery with a romantic angle that always includes good sex and a happily ever after - eventually.
Tanya has always dreamed of being a writer but only recently realised she could manifest her inner fantasies well after Vikings and Sons of Anarchy had finished filming, by creating her own bad boys and feisty heroines.
Tanya was shortlisted in the 2020 Australian Romance Readers Awards for Favourite Debut Author and Favourite Holiday/Christmas Story.
As a freelance journalist, Tanya specialises in all things romance - and anything else she pleases. She was shortlisted for the Romance in the Media Award in 2020. You can check out her portfolio of work here.
Tanya has worked for over 20 years in the social welfare industry, most recently working with Young Refugees and currently managing the Bushfire Recovery Support Service in Wollondilly and Wingecarribee.
Tanya is a proud member of the Romance Writers of Australia and is the Deputy Editor of the members monthly journal Hearts Talk.
