About Birch, Tanya

A born and raised Pennsylvania girl, Tanya Birch began her writing career as a teenager, when she won two national and three state Gold Scholastic Awards for writing dramatic scripts. Unfortunately, a long gap then ensued, “sidetracked” by ten years of financial services careers in New York City. That all changed in 2012 when Tanya moved to London, England and honed in on her passion, creating a successful blog,, where she traveled to over twenty countries and shared her memorable stories through her writing. Now back in the United States, she’s more than excited to write about all the inspiring stories out there closer to home.
