Tiara is a former New York City free bird who leaped into Mid-Atlantic domestication with her wonderful southern husband, super-hero two year old son and most recently, the mystery child brewing in her belly. She re-discovered her passion for writing after starting her blog, Then Came Isaiah about the ups, downs and all-arounds her life has taken since the birth of her son in 2007. As a recovering Type-A personality, Tiara has been struggling to find her happiness along the way rather than finding her happiness at her destination. This enlightenment came to her in the form of a refrigerator magnet and subsequently became the byline to her blog.
Born in Queens, NY, Tiara is the youngest of three and only daughter to her amazingly strong single mother and former NYPD Police Inspector father. Her brothers, ten and twelve years her senior, taught her to punch like a boy, always expect the best and to have an unnatural fondness for the eighties glam artist, Prince.
Pre-Mommy, Tiara attained her Bachelor’s degree in English from Binghamton University, Juris Doctorate from Howard University School of Law and became a practicing member of the New York State Bar. She has also studied feminism at the University of Dakar in Senegal, West Africa. Aside from mom, wife and blogger, her definitions include full-time attorney, poet and aspiring novelist.
