Author has written 54 stories for Romance, Love, Life, General, Religion, General, Fantasy, Mythology, Nature, Western, and Young Adult.

Hello everyone! My name is Tonia and I live in a small town in Texas. I've been a dreamer all of my life and just recently discovered that I had the need let the dreams, or stories if you will, out so I started writing. I love writing fanfiction and have posted several stories at ffnet, under the same username, and have a Live Journal account (itslikenature), but I'm also anxious to share some of my original work with everyone. For the most part, the stories or poetry that I will be posting here are pieces I've written in conjunction with a weekly prompt received at a Live Journal Community I write in called (storytellersong). Each week we receive a music prompt and are asked to write an original fiction story or poem based on the inspiration we receive from the song we choose. Music is such a big part of our lives and can bring to mind some of the most beautiful scenes and scenarios. I hope you find something that I've written that speaks to you.

I have been fortunate to have some of my original works published and am working on several lengthy projects. I have created a blog to share information about these projects with everyone and you can find it here: TMHobbs.BlogSpot.com . Please stop by and join my blog. I love making new friends.
