In 2011, Tiffany Higgins participated in NaNoWriMo. When she completed Child Eater, she was excited to publish. New to publishing and already having published her first picture book, We've Seen Santa, Tiffany chose to publish under a pen name. She chose Tifanne, a blend of her first name Tiffany and middle name Anne, and her maiden name, Messer.
All future publications will be published under Tiffany Higgins.
