Tiffiny’s remarkable debut fiction novel White Ninja in a new trilogy for young readers, is the realisation of a life-long dream for Tiffiny, who was a writer and journalist long before she hit our TV screens. White Ninja is a mystery, action/adventure story about thirteen-year-old Roxy Ran who doesn’t realise she is a ninja-in-waiting, until a fight with the school bully unleashes her powers.
When her secret crush Jackson Axe introduces Roxy to the world of martial arts, she learns about the legend of the White Warrior and the powers that are trapped in the Tiger Scrolls. The White Warrior is hunted by both the ninja and samurai clans, and now Jackson and Roxy must find the Tiger Scrolls and unleash the powers of the White Warrior before the samurai do. And in order to survive, Roxy must unleash her inner ninja.
White Ninja has already made an impact on kids around the country with its strong anti-bullying messages and characters who discover the greatest super power you can have is health and confidence.
Whilst Tiffiny has a profile in health and fitness, exercising her imagination has always been her passion. She grew up ninja in a family of black belts where martial arts was a way of life. Her parents run Taekwondo schools and Tiffiny has been surrounded by kids, teaching them martial arts and sharing her stories for over 15 years. It’s no secret that Tiffiny is obsessed with martial arts and loves kids, so writing a martial arts adventure series for children was a dream come true.
She says, “the world of martial arts has always been so magical to me, and I wanted to share the energy, fun and friendship I found in that world with my readers. I wanted to write about kids standing up for themselves and discovering the gifts of confidence, whilst feeling empowered to live their dreams like warriors.”
