My last post was right at the beginning of when I went back to school. It’s so interesting reading the posts I wrote back then. To say my life has changed is an understatement. In the past three and a half years, I’ve gotten two degrees (Bachelors and Masters), promoted three times (Library Technician II, Assistant Branch Manager, Librarian I), have eight books published, and had a baby girl. Needless to say, my life is completely different than it was during my last post. So I’m going to update my welcome now…
Hello. I am Tiffany N. Hayden. I was born in San Diego, and I have been there ever since. I got married May 19, 2012 to my amazing husband. Our baby girl was born January 13, 2019.
My parents have been married since 1976, and they are a true inspiration to me. They have supported me through this incredible journey. I also have a sister, brother-in-law, niece, nephew, and brother. My family is incredible!
I am extremely blessed with some great friends. Janelle (who has monthly, kid free girl nights with me), Rikah (my spiritual mentor who is also a writer), Jodi (my first supervisor as a permanent employee), Lorena and Caira (who are going through motherhood with me. All three babies are within five weeks of each other, and we’re all first time moms), and my mom group and coworkers.
Myself, I am a geeky, adventurous Christian girl. I am a huge Star Wars and superhero fan who loves to go spelunking, rock climbing, zip lining, horseback riding and have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. He has led me through so many things in life, and I am SO grateful for Him.
I decided the be an author when I was nine, and I've been working on it since. My very first book written was Mysterious Warriors. The original has been rewritten several times by now. My first published book is Child of Prophecy.
My favorite authors are Melanie Dickerson, Jody Hedlund, Johanna Lindsey, Tamara Leigh, and MaryLu Tyndell.
