Dina Redmon is a novelist specializing in coming of age and romance/erotica books. She uses her life experiences for inspiration in her writing and feels they have made her into the woman she is today. Her style is unique and she tends to write as though she is having a conversation with her readers. She was born in Stockton, Ca in 1970 and relocated to Minnesota with her family when she was just four years old. Because of her time in foster care, she has lived in numerous cities throughout Northern Minnesota. At the age of seventeen, she moved back to Stockton, Ca to live with her aunt and uncle until she turned eighteen. One of Dina’s greatest passions is art and she feels that beauty can be found everywhere. She has many hobbies to include cooking, baking, crocheting, sculpting, painting and tattooing. Though she has many hobbies, writing is her favorite. Dina’s love of the written word goes back to her earliest memories. She cannot recall a time that she didn’t have a pen or pencil in her hand. This love has inspired her to keep journals throughout her lifetime and she keeps them close at hand for constant insight and motivation. Her love of art is second only to that of children. She has been both a foster parent and a teacher. Dina taught art and life skill classes at the Boy’s and Girl’s club and maintains contact with not only her foster children but many of her students as well. Through the time spent with these children, they have become a large part of who she is and she loves each of them as though they were her own. Her free-spirit and gypsy's heart has carried her on countless adventures for many of her adult years. She has lived all over the United States but is now settled in Upstate New York and is enjoying the quieter side of life. Though she has survived countless heart breaks, she still believes in the “white picket fence” kind of love. Dina tends to be a very blunt person and tells it like she sees it. She feels that intelligence and the ability to use sarcasm properly are the most attractive qualities in people. Her favorite quote is from Charles Horton Cooley and it says, “An artist cannot fail; it is a success to be one.” All of her travels, travails, heartaches and adventures are evidenced in her work, which she openly shares with you.
