Tia Marie Boykins is an author, playwright, and certified fitness instructor. She founded the company Creativ1 Publishing with the purpose of producing high quality books for children and young adults. The goal of Creativ1 is to bring reading back to our youth and make it fun again. Living in a society where everything is dominated by technology and social media, kids have gotten away from reading for enjoyment. Tia would like to see that return. Her two novels, She’s Worth Waiting For and Fast Friends are targeted specifically for the teen and young adult audience. She’s Worth Waiting For has also been adapted as a short film and a stage play. When she's not writing, Tia may be found teaching various fitness classes throughout Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland. Tia is a Philadelphia native, raised and educated in the Delaware County area of Pennsylvania. She currently resides with her husband in Delaware.
