LONGER BIO

 

 

Welcome to the sparkling world of Tiara King. Author & Publisher, Jewellery Designer & Wardrobe Stylist, Star!

 

Tiara King burst into the world of publishing in 2011 and blazed a trail ever since. Writing adult fiction as L.J. Diva, she moved on to writing books under her own name with How To Be A Jewel Diva: Tips And Tricks To Buying, Wearing And Caring For Your Costume Jewellery being published in 2014.

 

Following it up with Closet Confidential: How to Audit Your Wardrobe And Update Your Style in 2015, both books are based on her expertise as a jewellery designer and stylist. She then started writing teen and young adult stories as T.K. Wrathbone, born from an exhausted and overactive imagination that will not stop exuding ideas until it’s done.

 

In 2016, she wrote the first four novellas and three lengthy novels in the Porn Star Brothers series. Releasing three of the novellas at the end of the year to celebrate the first anniversary of Jackie Collins’ death, she also dedicated the series to her. Jackie is her mentor, and not just for writing adult fiction, but for living by her own rules. Under her own name she published teen book, #teenblogger: To Follow or Not To Follow? about the trials and tribulations teens face every time they go online, with trolling, bullying and the pressure to be yourself, plus released four more T.K. Wrathbone stories.

 

In 2017, Tiara published the song lyrics she wrote from 1989 to 2002. Titled Poems of a Musical Flavour, the six volume series also features special deluxe editions. She released four more stories as T.K. Wrathbone, plus two novels from the Porn Star Brothers series, set up websites for L.J. Diva and the Porn Star Brothers book series, and started her publishing house, Royal Star Publishing, to accommodate all of her books and multiple personalities.

 

By 2018, all of her books were finally released under the Royal Star Publishing banner along with two new Porn Star Brothers novels, and the usual four T.K. Wrathbone stories.

 

2019 not only saw Tiara take major business steps to move forward with her social media and publishing decisions, but saw four more T.K. Wrathbone stories, and two more Porn Star Brothers books, released.

 

On the jewellery and accessories front, Tiara has been creating since 1990 and turned her obsessive love for it into her jewellery label, Jewel Divas, in 2008. Creating amazing one of a kind jewelled pieces of couture clothing plus jewellery to sell and wear; she is amassing her own huge personal collection. Adding styling to her repertoire through the Academy of Professional Image in 2013, she chose to go with wardrobe and accessory styling as she loves to organise and colour co-ordinate.

 

Tiara’s been blogging since 2009 and still posts weekly to her style site, Jewel Divas Style, a one-stop blog for sparkling jewels, style, and dancing under disco balls. JDS, as it’s affectionately known, is all about living life to the fullest when it comes to your clothing and accessories. “The more the merrier, the bigger the better”, and “BE YOURSELF and wear as much jewellery as possible!” are the JDS philosophies!

 

On a personal note, Tiara lives in Australia, has an obsession with colourful kaftans and kimonos, is a jewellery and sparkle addict, 80s music lover, book collector (especially Nancy Drew and Jackie Collins), and loves all things pink, blue, and tropical. She hopes to live on Queensland’s Gold Coast sometime in the future, and desperately wants to visit Mykonos and Santorini one day. She’s keeping everything crossed that it will happen.

 

 

 

ARTICLE/BIO FOR JOURNALISTS

 

 

Welcome to the sparkling world of Tiara King. Author, Publisher, Designer, Stylist, and Star!

 

And it’s a world that encompasses writing and publishing, jewellery designing and styling, because Tiara King was always destined to be surrounded by books and jewellery. This is why both feature so predominantly in the bright and colourful life she leads.

 

It all started way back in the decade Tiara loves most, the 80s, when she was in primary school and “self-published” her first two books with two other classmates. While doing this, her obsession with jewellery and fashion grew, and after having her ears pierced multiple times she started the trend of wearing one huge chunky earring in one ear. By high school, she’d not only made a third book, but was also writing song lyrics inspired by her favourite singers and bands.

 

Once school was behind her, Tiara kept writing songs and started analysing other artists’ lyrics to better her own, which led her to analysing books… So little did she know, that over the seven plus years she wrote lyrics, it was setting her up for bigger and better scribblings, namely short stories, novellas, and novels over 300,000 words. And it all started in 2006 when Tiara wrote her first novel, just four years after she stopped writing song lyrics, but then nothing… Until 2008, when her two passions collided and she found herself setting up her jewellery label, Jewel Divas, writing her second novel, and sending her books off for submission.

 

Two years later, in 2010, after writing her third novel, Tiara thought her hard work had finally paid off when she received the call all authors dream of. The call from a publishing house wanting her novel. After much consideration, she thanked them and declined their offer. But that was not the end of being an author.

 

In early 2011, the universe showed Tiara the way. After reading a blog post about self-publishing millionaire author, Amanda Hocking, Tiara now knew that self-publishing existed. She read through Amanda’s blog, and having run the gamut of rejections from traditional publishing houses and agents, she took her career into her own hands and set about making it happen, bursting into the publishing world with two of her novels by the second half of the year.

 

2013 saw Tiara take her jewellery business to another level by adding styling to her repertoire through Academy of Professional Image. She chose to go with wardrobe and accessory styling as she loves to organise and colour co-ordinate, and also found the time to pen her fourth novel and four non-fiction books.

 

Now, with both sides of her life warring for attention, she released How To Be A Jewel Diva: Tips And Tricks To Buying, Wearing And Caring For Your Costume Jewellery, along with the new novel and non-fiction books in 2014. And a new germ of an idea started that took a year to percolate…

 

Along came 2015, and Tiara decided to start writing teen and young adult stories as T.K. Wrathbone, which was born from an exhausted and overactive imagination that cannot and will not stop exuding ideas until it’s done. She followed up How To Be A Jewel Diva with Closet Confidential: How to Audit Your Wardrobe And Update Your Style, set up www.tiaraking.com.au as an information site bringing all of her businesses together in the one place, and had an idea for a new novel, inspired by the passing of her mentor, not just for writing adult fiction, but for living life by her own rules, author, Jackie Collins.

 

However, at the end of the year, her mother’s illness took over her life and something had to give. Sadly, it was her jewellery label, Jewel Divas, which she hopes to bring back at some point in the future.

 

That decision gave her brain the time to obsess over writing, and in 2016 phase one of her writing and publishing career moved into phase two. It was also an incredibly busy and tiring year. She became mentally and physically exhausted, but still managed to write four novellas and three lengthy novels for the Porn Star Brothers series. She released three of the novellas at the end of the year to celebrate the first anniversary of Jackie Collins’ death and dedicated the series to her. Under her own name she published teen book, #teenblogger: To Follow or Not To Follow?, and as T.K. Wrathbone released that year’s short stories along with two paperbacks.

 

In 2017, Tiara made the decision to set up her own publishing house, Royal Star Publishing, to accommodate all of her books, genres, and multiple personalities, and started releasing all of her books under that brand. Such as the song lyrics she wrote from 1989 to 2002. Titled Poems of a Musical Flavour, the six volume series also features several special deluxe editions. As T.K. Wrathbone she released another four stories, and as L.J. Diva she published the fourth novella and first full novel of Porn Star Brothers. She also set up websites for Royal Star Publishing, L.J. Diva, and the Porn Star Brothers book series.

 

In 2018, the Porn Star Brothers series continued with two more lengthy novels, the yearly stories under T.K. Wrathbone came out, and the Poems of a Musical Flavour series, #teenblogger: To Follow or Not to Follow? and all her other books were released in paperback under her publishing house, Royal Star Publishing.

 

She also sent #teenblogger, with a six page letter and little royal bits and pieces all wrapped up in a pretty box, to Ellen DeGeneres!

 

2019 saw things slow down a little as Tiara worked towards creating other formats for all of her books, took steps towards getting her books into libraries, and made many business, publishing, brand, and social media decisions. She also completed and published another two books in the Porn Star Brothers series, and the yearly T.K. Wrathbone stories.

 

2020 will see the publication of multiple books in hardcover and large print, the yearly T.K. Wrathbone stories in e-book and print formats, as well as the last book in the Porn Star Brothers series. It also brings phase four of Tiara’s writing and publishing career to an end, making her look forward to phase five in 2021 when production will ease off considerably and she can get back to writing standalone novels and plan a few other things.

 

On a personal note, Tiara lives in Australia and has been blogging since 2009, so she’s always on her style site, Jewel Divas Style, a one-stop blog for sparkling jewels, style, fun, and dancing under disco balls. She loves showing off all the things she makes, the bargains she buys, and the items she collects. She has an obsession with colourful kaftans and kimonos, is a jewellery and sparkle addict, 80s music lover, book collector (especially Nancy Drew and Jackie Collins), loves all things pink, blue, and tropical, and hopes to retire to Queensland’s Gold Coast sometime in the future. She’s also keeping her fingers crossed that she’ll visit Mykonos and Santorini at some point in her lifetime.
