Tisha Martin holds a bachelor’s in Professional Writing and a master’s in English Education, and enjoys finding humor in the everyday, blogging, ASL interpreting, training horses, collecting vintage hats, and getting involved in the writing and editing communities.

Once, on a whim, she purchased 130 vintage hats with money she was supposed to be saving to go back to college; and she “danced” with American horse trainer, John Lyons, who specializes in natural horsemanship. Adventurous? Maybe, but never reckless—unless you count the time she nearly tumbled into a truck bed while on a runaway, ornery pony.

Tisha is both a writer and an editor. She enjoys words—and reading—that much.

A contributing A3 author for Almost an Author, she writes about editing on “The Picky Pen,” and has contributed to PEN Tips for professional editors.
