Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Tonia’s passion for a career in writing and love for travel bloomed during her college years at Louisiana State University. Her experiences would give her the background for what would become her debut novel, Fashionably Deceptive and later her travel blog turned travel company, Travels by Tonia.
When she isn’t working on her next novel, she is traveling the world, blogging, and helping other to curate memorable travel experiences. Through her international and domestic travels, Tonia gives her readers access to not only competitive prices, but also recommended travel accommodations, must visit locations, and tips to make the most out of any vacation. Tonia has currently travelled to over 26 countries and is a certified Mexico and Jamaica travel specialist.
