IA Mullin Bio (242 words)
IA Mullin grew up on a farm in rural Colorado. She helped raise crops and cattle. She learned the value of hard work and fostered a love of animals. She went to Colorado State University to further her interests in animals and science. She graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Zoology. Next, she attended Front Range Community College and attained the status of Certified Veterinary Technician with an Associate's degree in Veterinary Technology. She has worked as a kennel cleaner, vet assistant, and vet tech, with various veterinary offices, the Larimer Humane Society, and volunteered with the Rocky Mountain Raptor Program, a rehabilitation center. She has raised cattle and pygmy goats. She loves all kinds of pets as well as nature and the outdoors.
In 2010, she chose to leave the veterinary field in order to raise her family. She began to write in earnest at that time. She had started her first manuscript as a freshman in high school, but had only written in her spare time as a hobby. Now as a mother of two active boys, she has founded Avio Publishing, LLC and is very excited to be a part of the future for independent publishers and authors.
"It's been a long journey to this point, but I don't regret any step of it. It has lead me to understand that imagination is the substance of creation. If I can imagine it, I can create it, at least on paper." ~IA Mullin
