Getting to Know Tiffany Flowers
I understand you support different charities through the sales of your book. Tell me about those.
I select a charity for each book that I write. I strongly believe in the idea of giving back to the community. So, I select charities that I think will benefit youth, families, and people at educational risk. So, far I adopted The Sigma Gamma Rho National Education Fund to provide scholarships to low-income college students, and the New Orleans Library Foundation to rebuild after Hurricane Katrina. I am also a Shadow forest author. I donated books to the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation.
What is the best piece of advice you have received, from either a fan or a fellow author?
The best advice that I received from a fellow author was to promote my work via social networking sites.
If you could pass on one tidbit of knowledge to both your fans and aspiring writers, what would it be?
I would suggest that you work on craft every day.
About the Book
This book is about a little girl that transports herself to the moon and back with a flick of her imagination. A portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to New Orleans Public Library Foundation. The purpose of this donation is to aid the Youth Services Department to rebuild the children’s literature collection after the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina.
