My parents wanted to name me something that couldn't be shortened so "Brina" came out of a baby book. It's pronounced like the water filter but with an "n" instead of a "t." I know I wish it was more exciting too, but sadly, it's really not. Though it's different and I like it.
I've been writing professionally for over three years. I also teach in an elementary school and I coach high school cheerleading.
After finally landing a teaching job I was only employed for two years before the furloughs started. If you're from PA you know that teachers are facing the biggest budget cuts we've ever seen, so when I lost my job I decided to start writing the Cryptid Tales novels. I had nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Want to meet Brina? Take a look at these options!

Library Chat/ Classroom Takeover
Brina has been teaching for over fours years and has experience with many age groups. She has all of her clearances and is comfortable chatting with any class or group.

Writer's Workshop: Teens will shout out ideas and Brina will develop a story with them. Focuses on the Writing Process and idea development.

What's Hot in YA: Brina will read an excerpt from one or more of her books. She will have items for sale and will host a discussion on being an author and what the students/teens are reading.

Cost can be discussed by e-mail. Brina does not charge libraries who allow her to sell her books at the meet and greet and are located in PA, MD, Northern VA, or Southern NJ. Other cost depends on travel time and hospitality arrangements. Currently she does not charge for the actual presentation. Most presentations run 45mins to an hour.
