T. A. Garcia grew up in California making her first visit to Hawaii in her early twenties. A few months later, she moved to the islands and enjoyed living in paradise for several years before moving to the Pacific Northwest. Eight years ago, she returned to her island home.
After her return, it wasn’t long before she received the spark of a story idea and began writing a Young Adult novel taking place in Hawaii. Her novel was published at the end of 2013. She wrote "A Time in Paradise" to share her love of the islands' beauty, culture, and aloha spirit as well as a young woman's introduction to first love.
She is finalizing edits to prepare for publishing her second novel, "A Day Like No Other". There are other new projects in the works that she is looking forward to sharing with everyone soon.
