Tiffany Odekirk believes cooking should take less than thirty minutes, frosting is better than ice cream, and all books should end with happily ever after. After graduating from Brigham Young University with a degree in Marriage, Family, and Human Development, Tiffany completed an internship with LDS Family Services in adoption and then went on to work with homeless women and children in the non-profit sector. Married to a Broadway star, Tiffany’s days are filled with music, and her nights are spent writing the types of characters she hopes her children will one day marry.

I know, I know, it's seems counterintuitive, but in this case you really do learn the most by doing. The second best way to learn writing craft is to read. Read, read, read, and then read some more. As you read, take note of what you like (or don't like), this will help inform your own writing. Finally, being willing to be vulnerable. Writing takes an immense amount of courage, but I promise you it's worth it. That's not to say you won't have disappoints, revisions, rejections, but what you will learn will make you happier, stronger, whole. So write those words, attend that writing conference, be willing to be vulnerable. It's so incredibly worth the risk. (less)

Some of my favorite artists are: Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, James Bay, and Sleeping At Last. I'm also inspired by pictures--photography specifically. When I begin writing a new story, I always create a playlist (you'll find these songs at the end of my novel), and a Pinterest page. That way when I'm feeling uninspired, I can just turn on my playlist and visit my Pinterest page and usually I'm able to write again. (less)

I’ve dreamt a lot about this day. Hoped for it. Prayed for it. Wondered what it would be like. But I really didn’t know what today would bring.


Today my very first novel, Love on Pointe, made its debut. That’s a big thing in the writing world–a really big thing–a thing I’ve worked a long time to achieve it. But it’s funny. Even though today was/is a big day, it was also a totally normal day beca...

Tiffany Tiffany said: " A ballerina, a boy, and a secret that could tear them apart.

The idea for this novel started with a simple question: What would it be like for a non-Mormon guy attending BYU? As soon as I asked myself this question, I couldn't help asking myself a mi

I think this is a very timely book with so many missionaries in the field right now. Coming home from a mission (esp. in the way this missionary did) is bound to be difficult. I think many RMs (elders and sisters) will find this book relatable.
