Tiffany has said that the story of The Oldest Soul had been “making its presence known” for several years.
Eve first sprang into her mind—like a bucket of cold water in the face—while on a walk in 2011, she promptly went home and wrote the first 4 pages (which have remained unchanged since). But she filed Eve’s one-of-a–kind journey away in her mind when work on other projects beckoned.
“I’ve been a writer of all forms of stories since I was around seventeen and the potential success of a couple of my TV pilot scripts took me further from Eve’s story, but what I didn’t realize was that I was always amassing inspiration for what would one day become The Oldest Soul. Everything in my world somehow always circled back to Eve.”
In the spring and summer of 2015, in a matter of months, she breathed life into ANIMUS, or rather, it breathed life into her … “The story is a force of nature—and seemed to move through me like an incredible breath of life from someplace else.”
Tiffany has always said that stories “know what they want to be.” And that as a writer she feels it’s her job to “show up and get out of the way.” Never has that felt so true than when Eve is telling her story.
“Elaborate worlds infused with real human emotions and strong characters with thought provoking stories are what fill my soul.” Tiffany has spent the past few years creating such worlds in the form of original feature screenplays and TV pilots as a screenwriter. The Oldest Soul – ANIMUS is her debut novel.
