About T. L.

T. L. Cooper started reading as a child and never stopped. She enjoyed reading so much she began weaving storytelling and social justice at a very young age when she attempted to save a groundhog’s life by creating an adventurous and full life for him in her stories while sitting on her grandpa’s knees.

Inspired in part by the stories she read, she wrote stories casting her classmates and herself as heroes and villains. 

By the time she started college at Eastern Kentucky University she’d developed a keen interest in human behavior and motivation, so she studied Corrections and Juvenile Services and Psychology. Her written work continued to explore human interaction and motivation though her reading focused more on the academic during this time period.

After college she worked as a counselor with troubled teenagers, a project coordinator, a registrar assistant, and a temp before becoming a full-time author. 

She has traveled extensively throughout the world feeding her passion for meeting new people and discovering both the similarities and the differences in the way people live.

Books have continued to play an important role in her life as she moved from one place and one moment to the next. She loves to discuss books and, particularly, to share books she loves with others.

Her work has been published in magazines, anthologies, books, and online. She has authored five books of poetry, two books of short stories, and a novel. She also writes three blogs, Write with TLCReviews with TLC, and Vegan Cooking with TLC.

In addition to reading and writing, she enjoys yoga, meditation, hiking, golf, cooking, and interesting conversation.

Currently, she resides with her husband, three cats, and many shelves of books, both read and unread, in Albany, Oregon.
