Breaking News: Media Attention for Your Book




Tiffany Griffith


Tiffany Griffith is an award-winning journalist by day, and a hopeless romantic by night. Born in Clearwater, Florida and raised in the Tampa Bay area, Tiffany comes from a long line of Barbadians who taught her to appreciate good food, a great party and even better stories. A graduate of the University of Florida (GO GATORS!), Tiffany has worked as an anchor, reporter, and producer in both radio and television, and currently breaks news from the assignment desk at Fox 5 Atlanta. Tiffany is a sucker for a good rom-com and has completed her first novel, A Drink Between Friends -- a tale of a dysfunctional Irish Pub on the Florida Coast. She appreciates her GRW family for the frequent accountability checks to FINISH THE BOOK! Tiffany's friends call her, “Tiff Griff.” You can, too.
