Tina Ann Forkner, Author


Dear Readers –

Welcome to my website. Please go to This Form to receive news about my upcoming books.

It’s hard to believe that it has been five years since my first novel, RUBY AMONG US, was published. Since then, I’ve had another novel published, ROSE HOUSE, and I’m thrilled to share that I’ve signed a contract with the wonderful Tule Publishing Group

I’ll share more news about my book with Tule as soon as I have more details, but it will be a Women’s Fiction novel available exclusively as an eBook. If you want to know more about it, please be sure to fill out the form (mentioned earlier) to receive my newsletter, follow my blog, or find me on social media (just click the icons on the upper right side of this page.)

Thanks for visiting and be sure to keep in touch!
