“Growing up, I was never an outdoorsy person. While the other kids would play in the neighborhood, I’d opt to stay inside and get lost in a book.”
Tiffany led a busy school life, participating in all sorts of projects, activities, and organizations but english literature was her passion. She excelled in her classes, intrigued by the many forms of literary genres. By her early teens, Tiffany was reading advanced novels.
“My mother read a lot of books. There were always stacks of them laying around in various stages of completion. Curious, I started reading the old paperbacks she’d pack away in the garage, always with the intent to recycle or resale them. To me, it was a treasure trove. This was my first introduction to historical romance and espionage novels. I fell in love with the brilliant minds of Sidney Sheldon and Rosemary Rogers. These early influences definitely shaped the way my mind works when I’m approaching a new project.”
It was only natural Tiffany would begin writing her own books. At the age of thirteen she began crafting her first novel.
“OMG! I loved those characters. I was honestly obsessed with them. I wrote over 400 pages and still couldn’t finish it. At the time, I don’t think I had the skill level to complete such a sophisticated story line. There was mystery, sex, murder and envy. A lot for a teenager to handle. I still have that manuscript. I promised myself I would complete it before I died.”
After graduating from the University of North Texas in 2002, Tiffany decided to pursue her dreams of becoming a novelist. She completed Love Script in 2006. The book was published in February 2007 by New Concepts Publishing.
“There is nothing more satisfying than having your work in print. Seeing your inner thoughts and emotions poured onto paper and put on display for the world to see leaves you feeling both exposed and revitalized. I love it.”
Known for her steamy and sometimes emotionally exhausting interracial romances, Tiffany looks forward to a long and adventurous career. Tiffany lives in Dallas, Texas where she continues to write her novels.
