By the 4th grade, she was reading books aloud to classmates and by high school graduation, she had written over 100 books, many of which were over 2,000 handwritten pages long! Today, she is the author of 7 published books.


    Tiffini is the recipient of the prestigious Who’s Who Award and the author of the award-winning, critically acclaimed, “The Character” and “Broken.” A relational activist at heart, Tiffini writes on social issues she is passionate about, including child abuse, the Holocaust and teen suicide.
