Rotary Club of Kirksville-Thousand Hills
09 January 2020
Tiffany is originally from Unionville, and is a young adult novelist. She chose to write for this age group, in part, because she wants good, wholesome, clean books for young adults to read. She also said that part of her inspiration for becoming an author is that she loves movies, but hates it when they end in a way that she does not like or agree with. So she figured if she writes her own stories she gets to determine the ending. Tiffany’s latest book, Vitality, is the first book of a trilogy she is working on. She also spoke about the publishing, editing, and marketing/promotion processes. It was surprising to many of us how long the entire process takes.
