Meet Tiffany Rosenhan!
Tiffany Rosenhan is the debut author of young adult spy thriller, Girl From Nowhere. Her spy skill is being in two places at once (quit easy when you have an identical twin)! She is a mother to four young daughters, has a degree in political science from the University of Utah, and loves to travel with her children and husband, a critical care physician and stroke survivor. She lives in Millcreek, Utah.
Meet Girl From Nowhere!
Ninety-four countries. Thirty-one schools. Two bullets. Now it’s over . . . or so she thinks.
SOPHIA HEPWORTH has spent her life all over the world--moving quickly, never staying in one place for too long. She knows to always look over her shoulder, to be able to fight to survive at a moment’s notice. She has trained to be ready for anything.
Except this. Suddenly it’s over. Now Sophia is expected to attend high school in a sleepy Montana town. She is told to forget the past, but she’s haunted by it. As hard as she tries to be like her new friends and live a normal life, she can’t shake the feeling that this new normal won’t last.
Then comes strong and silent Aksel, whose skills match Sophia’s and who seems to know more about her than he’s letting on . . .
What if everything Sohpia thought she knew about her past was a lie?
Cinematic and breathtaking, Tiffany Rosenhan’s debut stars a fierce heroine who will risk everything to save the life that she has built for herself.

YABC: What gave you the inspiration to write this book?
The character who would become Sophia has been in my head for years! One evening, when I was living in Taiwan, my identical twin sister and I went to the Night Market for dinner. At some point we became separated. Suddenly I found myself alone, on a dark street, in a vibrant, foreign, crowded city, unsure of where I was or how I would get back. As I began running, searching for my sister, ‘Sophia’ simply emerged, as though it was her running, instead of me. I began to wonder: Who was she running from? Who was chasing her? Why were they chasing her? And how would she get away? Minutes later - my sister and I collided and all was well. However, Sophia never left me, and I began to build her story in my head for years before I ever wrote a word. Additionally, I’ve been fascinated by linguistics, tradecraft, diplomacy, geography and travel since I was a little girl! Each of these interests influenced the book.
YABC: Who is your favorite character in the book?
Sophia! While her skill set might be a little over the top, Sophia is ultimately just a teenage girl with a complicated life!
YABC: Which came first, the title or the novel?
The novel! I actually sold GIRL FROM NOWHERE to Bloomsbury with a different title: HUMMINGBIRD.
YABC: Do you have a favorite writing snack?
I drink herbal tea all day long - when I’m lucky it’s fresh mint tea from my garden!
YABC: Thinking way back to the beginning, what’s the most important thing you've learned as a writer from then to now?
Anything and everything can change! If I keep writing, solving problems, and following my instinct, things will work out!
YABC: What do you like most about the cover of the book?
It’s modern, mysterious and indicates action and suspense! And I love seeing teenage boys walking around holding a book with teenage-girl-action hero on the cover!
YABC: What’s a book you’ve recently read and loved?
Code Name Verity! I grew up reading WWII fiction and non-fiction and I thought this was a clever take.
YABC: What’s up next for you?
The second GIRL FROM NOWHERE book!
YABC: Are there any film adaptations, tv shows, audiobooks, or other adaptations in the works for this book?
Yes to both! GIRL FROM NOWHERE has a brilliant screenwriter attached and will be pitched to the major film studios. It is also available as an audiobook on Audible. I helped select the narrator and I love how she reads my story!
YABC: Which was the most difficult or emotional scene to narrate?
Action sequences involve so much choreography, and consecutive, quick movements, that I have to be ruthless with word choice and cut anything un-essential. It’s incredibly tedious! The most difficult scenes are usually those heavy with important dialogue. It’s hard to know how much is too much, and how much is not enough!
YABC: Which part of the writing process do you enjoy more: Drafting or Revising?
Probably revising. I love the final stages of revision where a scene is drastically improved with the slightest turn of phrase, or a character shifts from despised to beloved with a tweak of description. However, more than either drafting or revising, I love a free write where it’s just me, words, and absolutely no direction. It’s magical to see the glimmers of a story emerge from absolute nonsense.
