Tiffany Turpin was born and raised in Baltimore, MD. She attended Baltimore City College High School, a college preparatory school. Reading was a requirement for graduation, but at that time in Turpin’s life, reading was not something she liked to do. Once she graduated from high school, and reading was no longer a requirement, she began to enjoy the places that books allowed her to visit. Turpin began to reread all of the books that were required in high school, but now for fun and without requiring a ten paged report. That’s when she fell in love with reading and has been an avid reader ever since. After high school Turpin attended Morgan State University on an academic scholarship in which she majored in accounting. Turpin has always loved math and science and figured accounting was a career that would allow her to further explore that love of math. Tiffany graduated from Morgan State University in May of 2002 with a BS degree in Accounting and began her career in the accounting field. But, Turpin never gave up on her love for reading.
One day during one of the winter blizzards that Baltimore, MD is known for having, Turpin made a decision. She had read every book in her home, and there were several, some that she had read more than once. Turpin decided to take her passion for reading and transform it into a story of her own. So she wrote a book based on things that she has seen in her years on this earth. And “I Wish I Was Her” was created. “I Wish I Was Her” is a story of how four women’s lives are changed forever after meeting one man with a secret that proves to be fatal. Just when you think you’ve figured it out, there’s another twist to keep you wanting more. This is the author’s first published novel and she is currently working on her second.
