After finishing her first novel, Tiara was reminded of her grandfather's legacy. "Publish your own books; write what you want," urged her mother.
Those words cemented her decision to "go indie," for all the highs and lows the road towards self-publication brings.
Born in Singapore, she is a graduate of Marymout College (Palos Verdes), University of San Francisco, and Exeter University. After twenty years living in the San Francisco Bay Area, Tiara now makes her home in Sutherland Shire, south of Sydney. She resides there with her Aussie husband and their four children whose initials appropriately spell L.O.V.E.
