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 working on Book 2 in The King’s Champion series.

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

I’m a member of the Historical Novel Society, SCBWI and the Short Fiction Writers Guild.

Feel free to submit the contact form below to contact me personally.

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