This month's author interview is with the one and only romance author Tiffany Carby! Let's dive in and get going, shall we? :)
Where are you from?
How did you get started as a writer?
I’ve been writing since I was a child! My first “published” work was in fifth grade; I wrote and bound an alien story called Orangepeachrumple.
When were you first published and what was the book?
She’s a Tiger Lily
What romance sub-genres do you write?
YA, NA, Contemporary
Do you write full-time, or do you work a day job as well? If you work a day job, what do you do?
Writing is my side hustle.
What’s your favorite part about being a writer?
I love telling stories; and making my characters come to life!
Do you prefer silence or noise when writing? If you prefer noise, what's your preference (music, television, etc)?
I like to have the TV on with something I’ve already seen. That way I’m not distracted, but there is background noise.
What are you working on now?
I’m currently working on a summer release for The Ice Cream Shop Series.
If you could live inside any one book you’ve written, which would it be and why?
I’d live in Spring City, Kentucky, no questions asked! Most of my stories take place in my Compant iof Griffin’s series that is based in my fictional Spring City.
If you weren't a writer, what would your dream job be?
Is editor too close to writer? I always dreamed of being editor of a magazine like Cosmo.
Pick an author you admire...who is it and what is the one question you would ask them?
I love, love, love Anne Conley. And I’ve forced her to be buddies with me so I just ask her anything whenever. It’s a wonderful thing! And she’s an amazing person!
You win the lottery, and you are celebrating with your a group of your most dedicated readers. How are you all celebrating?
We are having a Color Party, of course! But boy, will it be fancier and in person! (My reader’s group knows all about Color Parties!)
Do you prefer writing long-hand or typing the first draft?
Typing! I’m a much faster typist!
How do you choose your character names?
I have a character bank! Any time I hear a name I like, I add it to my bank! And I’m pretty picky, so if there’s a character of mine named after you, you’re pretty special or I don’t really know you! Ha!
If you had to write a book about yourself, what would call it?
Southern, sweet and hot mess express
Some say stalkers, I say friends! I'd love to see you everywhere ❤
