About Tobi

Tobi Doyle MacBrayne - three names, three genres, always a HEA

Tobi spends most days hanging with Rebecca Barray or Jessie the wonderhound.

Ridiculously happily married to her hubs of 28 years, even happier empty-nester.

Fun facts:

  • I've lived in Massachusetts, California, Texas, Indiana and now West Virginia.
  • I taught middle school science and loved it.
  • I'm a science geek and an art geek, too.
  • My parents never let me have animals growing up, so my kids were allowed pretty much anything they wanted.
    • We've had mice, rats, hamsters, a lizard, a frog, a chinchilla, a rabbit, a horse, cats, and dogs.
    • We currently house Jessie, a rescue mix that weighs 30 pounds and plays hot-lava with all the furniture. We have a cat, Kiki, and feed a couple of feral felines. We've caught and fixed the feral felines. (The hubs thinks I take too much pleasure in neutering.)
    • I have three adult children and they are truly awesome. I loved when they were little but they are freaking hilarious now and have taught me to use Snapchat and Urban Dictionary.
  • I love hearing from my readers!

My "press kit" because it takes me forever to find my bio on my computer...
