Hey everyone! Today we're going to be shining the spotlight on Brina Courtney, author of the amazing Cryptid series! 

Brina Courtney is a young adult author obsessed with chocolate, crime shows, and fantasy movies. She's spent the last few years as an elementary teacher and a high school cheering coach. She lives in a small town in Pennsylvania with her husband and two very loud, small dogs. 

My parents wanted to name me something that couldn't be shortened so "Brina" came out of a baby book. It's pronounced like the water filter but with an "n" instead of a "t." I know I wish it was more exciting too, but sadly, it's really not. Though it's different and I like it.
I've been writing professionally for over three years. I also teach in an elementary school and I coach high school cheerleading.
After finally landing a teaching job I was only employed for two years before the furloughs started. If you're from PA you know that teachers are facing the biggest budget cuts we've ever seen, so when I lost my job I decided to start writing the Cryptid Tales novels. I had nothing to lose and everything to gain.
