Dina Haynes has a wicked sense of humor, which explains why most of her stories are dark in comparison. This balance suits the card-carrying Libra well. Her interest in Romance sparked while exchanging fan fiction stories with her college BFF. Fan fiction wasn’t even a term back then, and unfortunately, the friendship didn’t last forever (those damn F words). But the stories…they kept coming. Years went by before she penned her first novel, taking the word literally using actual pen and paper. According to her exaggerated recollection, she punched a rebellious fist in the air and said, “I don’t need no stinkin’ computer!” Soon enough reality set in. She got her first laptop and began making the career you see today.
