Tia Williams
Tia Williams, a Northern Virginia native, graduated with a BA in English Literature, and she moved to New York City after she landed a plum gig at Doubleday Books as an editorial assistant.

In 1997, this University of Virginia grad embarked on a career as a magazine beauty editor, working her way on up the mastheads of Elle, YM, Lucky, Glamour, Teen People, and Essence. In the year 2004, she pioneered the beauty blog industry with Shake Your Beauty, her long running award winning site.

That same year, “The Accidental Diva”, her debut novel, hit the shelves to glowing reviews in Allure, Marie Claire, The New York Times, and Cosmopolitan. A movie based on the book, starring Gabrielle Union, Niecy Nash, and Keith Powers, was produced by Netflix and released in 2021.

She’d go on to co-write Iman’s makeup memoir, called “The Beauty of Color” and pen some young adult novels.

In the year 2016, “The Perfect Find” won the African American Literary Award for Best Fiction and it garnered rave reviews in Essence, The Washington Post, Ebony, Cosmopolitan, and People.

Tia always gets inspired to write by her real life experiences. For her, fiction is the truth that is amplified about a thousand times. It is the one and only way she knows how she can access real emotion in her characters.

Learning that her words have actually made somebody laugh, feel seen, or cry is the best part of being a writer, to Tia. It never gets old.

She lives in Brooklyn with her husband, her daughter, and many half-written manuscripts.

“The Accidental Diva” is the first stand alone novel and was released in the year 2004. Being a diva ain’t all that it is cracked up to be. Just ask Billie Burke about that. Beautiful, brainy, and at the very top of her game, she is the beauty editor at the world’s top fashion magazine, where paying tribute to the perfect pink lip gloss is serious. Trouble is, all of this corporate climbing and party hopping’s left her with some migraine headaches. Not to mention a lonely and long bout of celibacy.

Enter Jay Lane, who is a gorgeous performance artist that came up in a grisly hood in one part of Brooklyn entirely foreign to Billie. Soon, this beauty expert’s nights are running over with hot passion. And she is caught up in an affair which is just as crazy and addictive as the city itself.

“It Chicks” is the first novel in the “It Chicks” series and was released in the year 2007. What they want is fame, however all they have is drama.

Welcome to Louis B. Armstrong, which is New York City’s most prestigious performing arts school, where the wanna-be and gifted starlets, and It Chicks are all on the rise. However when rehearsals start giving way to hot and heavy after school sessions without the mic and away from the barre, that’s when the real drama starts.

Meet the hottest cast in the whole town: Skye the Drama Queen. Regina the Silent Threat. Trey the Bad Boy. Tangie the Dreamer. Izzy the Wild Child. Eden the Bombshell. CJ the Thug with the Heart of Gold. And the Entourage: Kamillah, Vineet, Blackadocious, Marisol, and Lyle. They are all playing the fame game and are going to do whatever it takes in order to nail it.

“The Perfect Find” is the second stand alone novel and was released in the year 2016. Is a forty year old woman that has everything on the line (ticking biological clock, high stakes career, and bank account) risk all of it for an intensely lusty secret romance with the only person that could possibly destroy her comeback permanently?

Jenna Jones, a former It-girl fashion editor, is desperate for a second chance, not to mention totally broke. When she gets dumped by her longtime fiance and canned from Darling magazine, she begs for a job from Darcy Vale, her old arch nemesis.

Darcy, the beyond-bitchy publisher of, agrees to hire her rival, but only because the fashion site needs a jolt from Jenna’s old school cred. Jenna quickly learns, however, that she’s in way over her head. She has never even “Twittered”, and she works with digital-savvy millennials that are half her age. She pretends to be a Fashion Somebody while she lives a style lie, since she sold her designer wardrobe so she can afford her sketched out studio, and now wears the finest Walmart fashions.

Worse? The twenty-two year old videographer that was assigned to shoot her new web series drives her crazy. Eric Combs, who is wildly sexy with a smile that she feels in her thighs, is off limits, however is much too delicious to resist.

“Seven Days in June” is the third stand alone novel and was released in the year 2021. Seven days to fall in love, then fifteen years to forget, and another seven days to get all of it back again.

Eva Mercy is a single mother and a bestselling erotica author that feels pressed from every direction. Shane Hall is an enigmatic, reclusive, and award winning novelist, who, to the surprise of everybody, turns up in New York.

When Eva and Shane meet unexpectedly at some literary event, sparks begin flying, raising not just their buried traumas, but also the eyebrows of the Black literati. What nobody knows is that fifteen years back, they spent a torrid and crazy week just madly in love. Even though they might pretend they don’t know one another, they cannot deny the chemistry they’ve got for each other. Or the fact they’ve been secretly writing to one another in their books over the years.

Over the course of the next seven days, during a steamy Brooklyn summer, they reconnect, however Eva is wary of the guy that broke her heart, and wants to get him out of the city so that her life will return back to normal. Before he goes away though, she needs a few of her questions to be answered.
