Tzynya Pinchback is a mermaid and storyteller. She is author of How To Make Pink Confetti (Dancing Girl Press, 2012) and the blog series, Tulle (Cat in the Belly blog, January 2018) - a cancer journal in photograph, comic book sketch, and prose. Her work has appeared in various publications online and in print. An empty nester, she bakes misshapen cookies that go into care packages for a polyglot unicorn and salutes the sun daily as it rises over the small seaside cottage she shares with a turtle who brews tea and makes collage.
