Born in 1957, Tanya was just ten years old when she achieved her first publishing feat. The author wrote poems that The Picton Gazette not only agreed to publish but they also paid her ten dollars.

Though, that did not immediately place her on the path to publishing success. Rather, Tanya went on to join the Canadian Naval Reserve. They had just opened the doors to women, so Tanya enlisted as a cook, certain that she would eventually go out to sea.

Unfortunately, she abandoned the post a year too early, before she could get her shot. That wasn’t the last time Tanya’s timing led her astray. The author eventually pursued a Radio and Television Arts degree.

But by the time she graduated from Ryerson Polytechnical Institute, the Radio and Television business had become quite competitive. People were being laid off left and right, and it did not take Tanya Huff long to realize that she stood no real chance of landing a secure job when so many of her rivals had years of experience to back their resumes.

Tanya loved books, so she was fortunate to land a position at Bakka. The eight years she spent working full time at the Bookstore afforded Tanya the opportunity to write seven books.

She was able to publish most of them. Tanya’s success came slowly. She can’t point to one singular event that immediately transformed her life and made her publishing dreams a reality.

The poems she sold at the age of ten definitely gave her the courage she needed to persevere as a writer, and so did her first professional sale which she made to the editor of Amazing Stories in the mid-1980s.

But for the most part, the success the author eventually received came at a trickling pace. Each story Tanya produced made her a better writer. And every book of hers that earned a position on a bookshelf grew her fame.

She was fortunate to participate in the activities of the Bunch of Seven, a writing group that gave her the support she needed to keep pursuing her writing goals.

The author isn’t afraid to admit that she often drew inspiration from real life, using the names of the people she had known and the places she had visited to bring some of her fantastical elements to life.

Best Tanya Huff Books

Tanya has been known to take pride in the fact that her living is earned solely through her writing, with some of the best books in her bibliography including:

Blood Price: Vicki Nelson was a homicide detective in Toronto. Now she works as a private detective. When a series of gruesome murders assails the city, Vicki reaches out to her old partner, hoping to find assistance in her efforts to stop a dark force.

Henry is a vampire but he knows how to blend in with the humans. He also understands that, without his help, neither Vicki nor her partner will survive the chaotic force they seek to foil.

Valor’s Choice: Humans were permitted to join the Confederation but only if they agreed to fight a war to protect the civilized races of the galaxy from a fearsome foe. Staff Sergeant Torin Kerr was forced to abruptly end her leave to protect a diplomatic mission to a non-confederation planet.

She did not expect the task to present much of a challenge, not even in light of rumors that the Confederation’s deadly enemy had been spotted in the vicinity, and that they were probably out to ruin the diplomatic mission.

In fact, for the longest time, things were going so perfectly that when all hell broke loose, Torrin wasn’t quite as prepared as she would have liked.

When Does The Next Tanya Huff book come out?

Tanya Huff doesn't seem to have an upcoming book. Their newest book is Into the Broken Lands and was released on August, 23rd 2022.
