Hello! Xina Marie Uhl, here. Nice to meet you.

An Arizona native, I currently live in sunny Southern California with my husband and a minor menagerie of dogs, cats, birds, and aquatic creatures. I’ve held a number of wildly different jobs in my life, from accounting clerk to history instructor, but writing has been something I’ve always done. My fiction is available through Amazon.com (under my full name), and my nonfiction is available under my name with a middle initial.

I utilize my BA and MA degrees in history to work as a freelance writer of various children’s nonfiction titles. The rest of the time I write humor, fantasy, and adventure novels, short stories, screenplays, and TV pilots.

Currently, I am hard at work on a humorous romantic adventure tentatively called Lady Justice and the Texas DeRangers. You can learn more about it over on my writing group’s website.

When I’m not writing, I enjoy photography, travel, pizza, and fine Arizona Mexican food, not necessarily in that order.

Perhaps you can’t get enough of me, though. Well, here are some other places I hang out:

By the way, you pronounce my first name (Zeena). And the last name is pronounced (Yool).
