According to NBC News, Tia Williams “is a writer’s writer with a fashionista twist.” In 1997, the University of Virginia grad embarked on a career as a magazine beauty editor, working her way up the mastheads of YM, Elle, Glamour, Lucky, Teen People, and Essence. In 2004, she pioneered the beauty blog industry with her long-running, award-winning site, Shake Your Beauty.
The same year, her debut novel, The Accidental Diva hit shelves – and received glowing coverage in Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Allure, and The New York Times. She went on to co-write Iman’s makeup memoir, The Beauty of Color, and penned two young adult novels, It Chicks and Sixteen Candles.
In 2016, her novel, The Perfect Find, won the African American Literary Award for Best Fiction – and garnered rave reviews in The Washington Post, Essence, Cosmopolitan, People, Ebony and InStyle. Gabrielle Union is set to star in the film adaption for Netflix.
Tia’s latest novel, Seven Days in June (Grand Central Publishing) launches in June 2021. Currently an Editorial Director at Estee Lauder Companies, Tia lives in Brooklyn with her daughter, her husband, and several half-written manuscripts.
