BestIndeBooks welcomes Tina to our writer's block spotlight. Tina recently published her first book, Seminole: Some People Never Give Up, in the fall of 2019 and has sold over 1k copies since and is continuing to experience a consistent level of sales.
Tina has written a compelling memoir that has a fascinating intersect with history. Seminole surprisingly culminates with Congress and a US President acting together to end her family's centuries of migration from country to country due to their Mennonite faith. Tina's story is an engaging read from cover to cover, particularly if you're a fan of history or true stories.
Tina will be sharing a blog article that discusses her motivation and some and the process she went through to write Seminole.
Katharina “Tina” Rempel Siemens immigrated to the U.S. from Mexico in 1977, becoming a U.S. citizen in 1986. She married her best friend, John Siemens, on April 17, 1988. She is the proud mother of two sons, both married, and Oma to four precious grandchildren. In 1989, Tina and her husband, John, started JW&T, Inc.—a company specializing in both residential and commercial construction.
Tina has served on various boards in Seminole, including the Chamber of Commerce and the hospital board. In November 2015, Tina had the great honor of being named citizen of the year of Seminole, Texas. And hardly a day goes by that she doesn’t tell someone how proud she is to be an American!
