Tina Hogan Grant – about the author

Tina Hogan Grant – about the author.  A native of England. I feel very lucky to have spent my childhood and adolescent years in a small quaint Yorkshire town called Ilkley, where many days were spent roaming the Yorkshire moors, climbing the Cow & Calf Rocks, swimming in the River Wharfe and playing “Conkers” and “Jacks” with schoolmates. 

I am the youngest daughter of famed science-fiction author James P. Hogan who sadly passed away before my first book was published. Thank you, Dad, for sharing your passion for books and writing with me. Today I am living that passion with hopes of passing it on to my children and grandkids.

Commercial Fisherwoman turned Author

I came to America in my late teens and in my mid-twenties I spent ten years commercial fishing for lobsters with my future husband Gordon. After many tired days and nights spent at sea, we decided to sell it all and move to the mountains with the dream of building a house.

We built our house

Fast forward fifteen years and we actually built our dream home. (Doing most of the work ourselves.) In the small mountain community of Frazier Park located in Southern California and finally moved in 2019.


Built with our own bare hands

Our life today

We lead a simple life in the country, where we raise chickens for fresh eggs, and grow vegetables and our only source of red meat is venison, hunted by my husband. We enjoy everything related to the outdoors. My husband is a professional falconer and bird trainer. We love relaxing afternoons kayaking the lakes in our surrounding areas and hiking with our two dogs, a Jack Russell (Ellie) and a Britney (Tess).  My other passions include gardening, fishing, boating, and of course writing and curling up with a good book.

Currently, I’m in my mid-fifties and content where I am in my life right now. A new chapter has begun. It’s an exciting time to watch my manuscripts evolve into books for others to read and hopefully enjoy. I’m on this path and I hope you will join me.
