Born in Traverse City, Michigan, Tiffany grew up with a love for language. She has enjoyed writing stories and poetry from a young age. Her love for language and travel compelled her to study Spanish in high school and to travel to Madrid, Spain for her first year of college at Saint Louis University Madrid Campus. After that year, she spent a semester at Academia Hispano Americana in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. She then moved to Oregon, obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Spanish Language and Culture with a minor in Cultural Anthropology from Southern Oregon University in 2008. She has worked as a Spanish language interpreter since that time. She now lives, works and writes back in her hometown of Traverse City.
About the Series
In a universe teeming with life, some advanced beings value technology over spirituality for others, the opposite is true. For the Arches, technology (and power) rule supreme while the elves of Kitharion find more value in growing spiritually. Now that the Arches have been gone for 8,000 years, finally thrown off the planet by the elves, balance has been restored on Kitharion (nearly). There are still those alive today who think that the Arches had the right idea.
The surface elves of Kitharion choose not to use much technology; they’d rather work on themselves. Many are able to develop their spiritual gifts, such as the use of empathy and telepathy.
The challenge faced in book one is figuring out who will go to replace the Life Stone that channels the Creators’ (Medeinas’) energy to the planet, thus giving life to all.
In the three-book Roquiel Saga you will meet many relatable characters. People that are trying to fit in, develop friendships, grow and overcome challenges.

Roquiel and the Phoenix
“Wisdom? No. Not this time. It is the most unwise thing that we could do and we must not allow it to happen. You know it would be the end of our world to heed this prophecy,” Ava said, her tears turning into anger. “Do not worry, Ava. In time you will see that it is the right thing to do,” Sabio said. “I do not wish to disagree with you, but this time I must,” Ava said. “Have faith, dear one,” Sabio said with a smile.
The phoenix that guards the Life Stone on Kitharion is dying. When it dies, the Life Stone must be replaced or the life-giving energy from Medeina cannot be channeled into the planet. But who will be the elf to take on this dangerous mission?
