Introduction
I'm Tasha and I'm an author. I run my own small publishing company (Wittegenpress.com) with my twin sister and we publish genre fiction in eBook format. Check out the links to see my novels.

I used to be a developer/database designer, but set off into pastures new when I was made redundant in 2010.

I have four novels out there at the moment Cat's Call a YA contemporary fantasy story, its sequel Cat's CreationSacrifice of An Angel, a fantasy/contemporary crime novel I wrote with my sister and Advent, an urban vampire novel, as well as quite a few short stories and anthologies that can be found at Wittegen Press.

I have also written fanfiction for many a year which can be found at My Livejournal (beren_wrties), or my AO3 account.
