Tiffany Turner was born in California and grew up in the San Francisco South Bay in the 1980s. She lived next to one of the many orchards that sprawled through what later became the Silicon Valley. She had a fantastic fantasy world in which she imagined a crystal cave below her house and drew cartoons of unicorns. She had trouble learning to read and write due to hearing problems, and received extra help in school through speech. She overcame these obstacles to go to college and become an elementary school teacher. She has been teaching for 17 years and focuses on writing to bring creativity back into the classroom.
