Reading and seeing other authors live out their dreams inspired her to become a published author. After working at a call center for nearly six months, she quit abruptly, knowing that she didn’t want to answer phones for the rest of her life. In fact, she knew that she didn’t want to do anything else—except write. Feverishly she started on her first manuscript, which turned out to be the bestselling novel, Cashin’ Out. Currently, Miss Nicole is working on her second novel and helping those in need in her community.

“You will never make it,” Tiphani remembers hearing her non-supporters saying.
Eighteen years old and pregnant, the odds were against her and time wasn’t on her side. Refusing to believe that she was anything less than excellent, Tiphani Montgomery, moved from Rochester, NY to Raleigh, NC at the age of twenty-one and enrolled in Saint Augustine’s College. That move seemed to be the answer until her Attention Deficit Disorder (A.D.D) kicked in.

“I had been diagnosed with A.D.D at an early age and it seemed to stick with me into adulthood. I was always that stubborn kid that refused to take the “smart medicine”, which it was verbally referred to me as. I was convinced that I was smarter than the pills and I wanted to prove everyone wrong!”

Tiphani left college after only attending for a couple of months and chose a different route; a route of passion. In 2005, Tiphani jumped out on faith and self published a book of poetry, selling over twenty -five hundred copies in less than thirty days. Following her first release was her sophomore book that made its debut in 2006, Millionaire Mistress.

“I totally exhausted myself with learning about the publishing industry, marketing, and selling. I read every book I could. There were no options…I had to succeed!”

Tiphani’s proven sales record and marketing techniques caught the eye of author, Tonya Ridley, who opened the doors for bigger possibilities. It was when Tiphani met Tonya did she ever consider writing fiction novels. Tonya put Tiphani’s work in the hands of Life Changing Books publisher, Azarel, and the rest is history!

 


 

 

Tiphani’s first fiction effort, The Millionaire Mistress, sold out everywhere within the first three  months of its release, landing it a spot on the Essence Magazine best seller’s list for: March 2007, April 2007, May 2007, June 2007, #1 in July 2007, and March 2008. Still A Mistress, the successful sequel to her first novel, made its debut on the Essence Magazine bestseller’s  list, taking over the #2 spot for March 2008 and April 2008. In addition to being an accomplished writer, Tiphani Montgomery, is a motivational speaker focusing her energy on developing outstanding leaders and encouraging her generation to defy the odds. Tiphani currently resides in Raleigh, NC with her nine-year old daughter, Jaedah Kiss, where she is penning her fourth novel, a screenplay, and establishing a non-profit organization to encourage financial literacy to teenage mothers.
