Orsayor: If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not, living or dead, real or fictional, with whom would it be?
Tiffany: Oprah. And while I was her, I would make my book her next book club selection, and green-light the book-to-film budget. Then, I would go have a spa day with Stedman, and get lots of information for a tell all book called, “Oprah – Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong With Having a Sugar Mama”
Orsayor: If you were written about in the newspaper, on the front page, what would the headline say?
Tiffany: Christian Fiction Author Chokes Teenage Daughter

Tiffany: I sing and pray in the car.
Orsayor: What song best describes your work ethic?
Tiffany: “Everyday I’m hustlin’”
Orsayor: Are there any occupational hazards to being a novelist?
Tiffany: The snacks. The SNACKS! I need crunchy, salty foods to write. They help me think
Orsayor: What are the most important attributes to remaining sane as a writer?
