A former programmer analyst, author Shastina Gray is now pursuing more artistic, creative ventures. She grew up near the shores of Lake Michigan in the Midwestern US. Retired, she currently resides near the beautiful Cascade Mountains of the Pacific Northwest. It is from a prominent peak in these mountains, Mt. Shasta, that she derives her pen name.
When not pursuing her favorite pastimes of reading mysteries, westerns, and romances, she can be found watching retro TV shows on DVD with her joke-telling husband of many years.
