Tanya Logan is a long-time writer, author and speaker. Originally from Tennessee, she has also spent time in Northern Virginia, West Virginia, Georgia, and Florida. Tanya has ghost written 11 books, two of which remained on the best seller’s list for two years. In 2013 she closed her music store, Fiddlesticks Stringed Instruments, and moved to Florida, where she has continued to write through her own imprint, Finch Hollow Press.
Tanya holds a Master’s Degree in Christian Education. Prior to that, her education was in mathematics but her interest was playing in the symphony orchestra. She started playing viola at the age of 10. Besides violin, viola, and cello, Tanya is an accomplished pianist and is now enjoying Celtic harp.
Being a Gemini, Tanya can’t have only one interest – so she writes non-fiction books about pet birds and also Christian Bible studies. She also recently has tried her hand at fiction. She throws herself into each subject wholeheartedly because, “Life is one great adventure; we never know where it will take us next!”
Education for Pet Bird Owners
I got my first cockatiel in the 1980s, and did everything wrong. It’s all we knew back then! Now, the Internet allows us to learn about birds and how to keep them, yet I still see lots of tiny cages, seed- only diets, and birds being passed from owner to owner because of unacceptable behavior.
My goal is to help change all that through education owners and giving them simple tools for successfully keeping – and enjoying – their birds.
Bible Studies for Real People
In 2013 I sat down with 6 pieces of paper. Six books I potentially wanted to write. When I prayed over them, the Lord was very clear that I should go in the direction I took with Come Back to Jesus. That direction is to show people how to clear the clutter so they have more time to worship God better.
To me, a large part of that is getting people into their Bibles. So that’s what I try to do. I’m happy to lead a group, or to just write books so that others can use them for small group study.

And here suddenly I’m writing about — birds?!?
Well if you read far down into our “about” section you know about my love of parrots, finches, cockatiels, etc. Basically if it flies I’m a fan. I’ve kept Lady Gouldian Finches for ages, they’re tiny and beautiful… and make your home sound like a nice jungle. But there’s not a lot of information about some aspects of Gouldians, in fact most of the dietary and disease testing has been done on CHICKENS. I am not kidding.
Anyway skipping forward, I found that way too many people were still feed their finches and parrots seed only. Which is sort of akin to you and me eating saltine crackers 24/7. So I wrote this book, it’s got a lot of information about health and which vitamins/minerals they need, and each chapter covers one part of the diet. And there are recipes. So here it is……..

My latest book is a 6-week Bible study. It’s about how to clear the junk out of the way so we can worship God in a better, more relaxed way. You don’t have any junk, you say? How many times have you sighed “Oh–I’m so busy,” or “so stressed out,” etc. Those are the words that indicate you’re too covered up to spend time with God. They are a signal that we need to get our priorities in order.
God. Is. The. Priority.
Available in paperback and Kindle versions.
"The Gouldian Finch Handbook by Tanya Logan is an irresistible introduction to this lovely, complicated bird."
"I instantly became fascinated by this charmingly beautiful bird. I learned about its natural habitat, its history... how to keep and care for this finch, including ... the best food to feed it and what types of ailments might plague its well-being... genetics and breeding and the marvelous array of colors these birds might sport. The author even dispels certain myths and rumors circulating about these birds. The end of the book is an added resource in itself with multiple appendices to direct me to further reading and research. This is a concise and well-presented handbook – interesting, too."
"The book is awesome and very helpful!!! I would definitely recommend to all those finch breeders."
