ABC3 NINJA DAY
I loved filming with Studio3 for Ninja Day in honour of RED SAMURAI
Tiffiny has a Bachelor of Arts/Media and Communications and Diploma of Modern Languages (French) from the University of Melbourne, Certificate III & IV in Fitness and a Diploma of Sport (coaching) with a specialisation in martial arts.
Tiffiny commenced her writing career as a print journalist. She has written a column in the Herald Sun and OK! magazine and worked as a health and wellness contributor to Cosmopolitan magazine, Cleo magazine, Women's Health and Fitness and a number of other magazines. Her first health book, How to create the Ultimate Body was published in 2008 followed by Weightloss Warrior in 2011, Fatloss for Good - the secret weapon and Lighten Up cookbook 2012.
Tiffiny’s English teacher was the inspiring John Marsden of the Tomorrow series. She won the John Marsden award for creative writing in 1996 and has continued writing fiction ever since. She released her debut novel White Ninja, the first book in the Roxy Ran series in 2012 with HarperCollins Publishers. White Ninja is followed by Red Samurai and Black Warrior (coming 2014). Quoted on the cover, John Marsden says of White Ninja, "Dazzlingly different ... a novel about transformation that has the power to transform every reader. Tiffiny Hall is the new voice in children's fiction.”
White Ninja was selected for the prestigious list of ’50 books you can’t put down’ for 2012. Tiffiny also writes for teens. Her first Young Adult novel will be released in 2014 with HarperCollins Publishers.
Tiffiny first hit our screens in the remake of Gladiators as athlete Gladiator Angel, then continued to present a weekly health/lifestyle segment on The Circle. She has appeared on Kids WB, Fox8, Today Tonight, Sunrise, Mornings, The Project, ABC, Love to Share and Nickelodeon.
After studying martial arts for over 25 years, growing up in the family business Hall's Taekwondo, daughter of an Olympic coach and ninja mum, it’s no surprise Tiffiny has more than fifteen Australian Titles.
Tiffiny loves to take her martial arts out of the dojo not only through television and her fiction but also into schools. As well as writing and TV, Tiffiny is a popular school speaker empowering kids through anti-bullying programs, health talks, writing workshops and self-defence. She combines her entertaining talks with strong messages of confidence, resilience and self-esteem. Not forgetting the big kids, Tiffiny is also a corporate motivational speaker with active health seminars for business athletes.
