Happy New Year! Happy 2021!
Congratulations! You survived a year of much stress and many unexpectancies. Hopefully, you now see how strong you are within and how much your family and friends mean to you.
My name is Tiffany L. Gray, and I am the CEO of Never Predictablez Inspirational Resources. I'm a middle school teacher who has been mentoring preteens and teens for over 10 years. My goal is to empower your children by providing interesting and educational programming, encouraging them to find God's purpose for their lives, and delivering relatable inspirational novels.
The year of 2020 was full of many ongoing heartaches, but the year still brought many blessings. One of my personal blessings was the publication of my book Never Predictablez: Knife Between My Eyes That Muted My Cheer.
Although nine years has gone by since the last book was released, somehow, through this pandemic, I was able to get the second novel completed. This sequel to the Never Predictablez's series is still about my six (now seven) multicultural male and female friends and the struggles of their everyday teenage lives. However, in this book, Nikki, our cheery and uplifting one of the group, goes bad and finds herself another clique. Running around with this group leads to an unexpected run-in with the law and an attack on her life.

Creation of NEVER PREDICTABLEZ
I was motivated to write this book based upon my young adult experience of seldom seeing and having access to interesting multicultural, fictional books about faith. Today's books are more diverse, but they tend to be either adult romance, violent, or science fiction. NEVER PREDICTABLEZ 's books are none of these. They are relatable, REAL TALK, age-appropriate, action-packed novels with an inspirational twist.
I am an Entrepreneur, an Author, a Workshop Creator& Facilitator, and a Motivational Speaker.
One gift that God has blessed me with is the ability to turn everyday life situations into intriguing lessons and stories.
My love for words began in elementary school. Throughout most of my adolescent years, I could be found with a book and a notebook in my hand; whether headed to my sporting events; my marching band contests, or my community service functions.
My passion for writing blossomed so intensely during childhood that I received my BA degree in English and my MA degree in journalism. After college, I began working more frequently with young adults and children by working for schools and non-profit organizations.
Never Predictablez's updates are now available on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!!
