Hey! Thanks for stopping by. I'm Tiara Janté and I am a Locus Award winning author, journalist, and national bestselling ghostwriter. I specialize in writing character driven stories that weave the fantasticism of speculative fiction with the realities of the past, present, and future.
My characters are created to reflect the authentic and multilayered dimensions of Black people and our experiences in America. I am a staunch advocate for amplifying Black voices through media, and I frequently collaborate with other Black creatives to help bring their stories to life. You can check out some of these stories via my latest project: Black Is The Standard.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in English & Literature from Muhlenberg College and I defend for my Master of Arts in Professional and Digital Media Writing from East Stroudsburg University this year.
My work spans the gamut of fiction, non-fiction, literary, and non-literary. Writing is my passion and I use it not only as a way to express myself, but also to improve the quality of life for Black people and other marginalized groups.
Currently, I reside in eastern Pennsylvania with my children where I spend my time mommying, reading, creating, and immersing myself in the beauty of Black culture. When I'm not busy with any of the aforementioned activities, I'm likely plotting on how I'll take over the world.
My debut sci-fi novel is forthcoming.
