Faculty and Author

Tiff_headshot_lowresTiffany Amber Stockton has been crafting and embellishing stories since childhood, when she was accused of having a very active imagination and cited with talking entirely too much. Today, she has honed those childhood skills to become an award-winning author and speaker who has partnered with Nerium International in the whole body anti-aging industry, helping others look younger, function with optimal brain health, and live better.

Her writing career officially began in high school with the publication of her first children’s book, but she didn’t pursue adult fiction until college. She wrote her first novel in 1999, joined ACFW in 2002, and received a request for a full manuscript in September 2004. Two years later, in December 2006, that request resulted in her first sale. She has sold seventeen (17) books so far and is currently seeking a new literary agent for representation. Three of her novels have won annual reader’s choice awards and in 2009, she was voted #1 favorite new author for the Heartsong Presents book club. She spends a lot of time mentoring other writers and sharing her experiences. She’s spoken at several local writer’s meetings, women’s retreats, one-day seminars, and presented workshops at 2 regional and national conferences.

She lives with her husband and fellow author, Stuart Vaughn Stockton, in Colorado. They have one girl and one boy, a Retriever mix named Roxie and and Australian cattle dog named Timber. Read more about her at her web site: You can also find her on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Linked In.
