Hi, I'm Tianna

a wife and mom of two little blondies in the suburbs of Chicago. We spend a lot of time cooking, baking, and eating in the kitchen. Food is my love language, so I'm sure it won't surprise you that my upcoming picture book series, When You Dream is inspired by sweets, pastries, and lots of sugar!


My family

It's my intention to make all endeavors a family affair, including When You Dream of Chocolate Cake and The Bakery Box. That’s a lot easier said than done with small kids who don’t want to sit still... unless there’s cake involved. They will always sit still for cake!
