  • A Sister For My Birthday

    Today’s a very special day – it’s Jackson’s 3rd birthday! Mama and Daddy have a fun day planned for Jackson while his big brother Jordan is at school. But when Mama tells Daddy, “It’s time!” everything changes. Jackson isn’t quite sure what’s happening, but his birthday will never be the same!

    Praise for A Sister for My Birthday: "A Sister for My Birthday" is a beautifully illustrated, touching story about the arrival of a baby in Jackson’s family. He sweetly shares his special day with his new little sister. This would be a wonderful story to read with young siblings preparing for the birth of a new baby. I will definitely recommend this book to my parents.

  • A Tiny Baby Brother

    Jordan is going to be a big brother and he can't wait! But when Jackson is born, he is so small that he has to stay in the hospital for a long time. Jordan and his family visit him every day. But all Jordan wants is for Jackson to be big enough to come home!

    Praise for "A Tiny Baby Brother"


    "Every time I see a newborn in my office I always ask how their older siblings are doing. This is especially important when the baby has been in the NICU. “A Tiny Baby Brother” helps a big brother understand, bond, and be excited about meeting his premature baby brother. It is an excellent story for families to share with their new big brothers or sisters."

    "When will baby Jackson come home? The excitement, joy, and wonder of big brotherhood perfectly captured."

    Rat Race: Journey of Hope will be available for delivery beginning April 20, 2021. Preorder your copy today!

    The Legends racing team has a big problem. 

    They’re running out of money, and there's only one way to fix it—win a million dollars in the 'Round the World Race. But there's one huge obstacle: they can't find enough racers. Rexie Rat volunteers, but Big Rex won't even consider it. 

    Rexie is determined to prove she's ready to race, no matter what it takes. Even worse, the other team members have troubles of their own that no one knows about—yet. Can Rexie convince her father that she's good enough to compete? Will she be there for the team when they need her most? 

    In this new series by Tiffany Robinson, author of the popular book Zoe's Sidewalk, the Legends—and readers, too—discover that just like the Legends, we're all in this together.

My mission is to inspire people and bring them joy through positivity, kindness, and creativity. 

LaPeche Books is an Atlanta-based sole-proprietor, black, woman, service-disabled veteran owned business. My favorite part of being an author is working with students, and talking about their ideas and dreams for the future. 

My most important role is mother - God blessed me with three children, teenage and older. They are a constant source of inspiration.

In addition to the USAF, I've worked in corporate and academic public health, project management, consulting, taught college classes, and owned a restaurant. Experience and failure are my best teachers.

When I'm not working, I enjoy hanging out with friends and family, eating good food, listening to funky music, and traveling to interesting places.

LaPeche Books publishes books that model loving families, friendships, community, and kindness. My stories represent positive social norms and place emphasis on characters of African descent. We didn't have representative books when I was a child or young adult, and I want to change that for kids and adults today.
