Kingdom of Men: Sister Worlds Book by Tiffany Nicole Terry


The dragons are extinct, but their war continues. Can the land’s sole female fighter find her place in a realm ruled by men?

KaLeah wanted more from her father than warrior training. But after she tells him of a mysterious object she encountered in the woods, he inexplicably storms off into the night. And when he doesn’t return, the teen’s frantic search for him ends in an ambush by bandits.

Slaying the fiends and freeing a kidnapped princess, KaLeah is furious when the king orders her to babysit the rescued royal. With her dad still missing, assassins circling her young charge, and a prince dangerously toying with her emotions, the determined fighter will need every ounce of her unique skills to survive…

Can KaLeah protect the princess from the men in the kingdom who want to kill them both?

Kingdom of Men is the thrilling first book in the Kingdom of Men YA fantasy trilogy. If you like strong-minded heroines, ancient conflicts, and uplifting quests, then you’ll love Tiffany Nicole Terry’s action-packed adventure.


1. Can you tell us a little about your publishing journey, please? I wrote the first draft of this book twenty years ago, when I was in college. After being rejected by traditional publishers, I decided to rewrite it, craft a trilogy, and self-publish. I also wrote and self-published three children’s books at the same time, so there was a really big learning curve. 

After being divorced for many years, I took a step back from dating to heal and accomplish the goal of finally finishing and publishing my trilogy. 

2. How do you decide who to dedicate your books to?

When I first created my characters, I was in college. One was a brown-haired, no-nonsense warrior and the other was a blonde-haired spunky princess. Almost ten years later, I had my first daughter. She had dark brown hair and has always been a tom-boy. In the store toy aisle, she always went for the trucks, transformers, and superheroes. When I had my second daughter, she turned out to be a feisty, strong-willed blonde. It was meant to be, and so I dedicated my first book to them. 

3. What was the inspiration behind your latest release?

I’m still a newbie author, so the last book of my trilogy is my latest release. It focuses on closing all the holes and solving all the mysteries in my trilogy. Although it is a fantasy based on two very different planets once inhabited by dragons, I consider it near to a memoir. When I first came up with the idea, I was obsessed with a man I dated in high school. Years later I married him, and it turned into a nightmare relationship. This trilogy helped me process my trauma, heal, and find a new focus. 

4. Do you find it hard to let your characters go when you finish writing the book?

Since two of my main characters are so similar to my daughters, I definitely didn’t let them go. The good ones are parts of me and parts of my friends over the years. The bad characters are based on people I have already let go in my real life. 

5. What was your favourite read of 2022? 

The Power by Naomi Alderman. I have been enthralled by women’s issues and struggles most of my life, especially women in abusive patterns. The Power really turns the issue on its head and although disturbing at times, was a real eye-opener for me. 

6. Who is your favourite author?

I have to go back to my first experiences reading L.J. Smith in high school. I still have my original Night World books, although she never finished that series. Her books made me fascinated by witchcraft and soulmates. 

7. Was there a point in your life that a book helped you get through, and which one?

Codependent No More by Melody Beattie probably saved my life and my sanity. After my last relationship, it was reading self-help books and journaling that eventually led me to finishing my trilogy. 

8. Is there anyone that you would like to mention and thank for their support of your writing?

My mom has made my life what it is today. After I had my ex-husband removed from my home, and even before then, I was running a household, raising two babies, and working full time, trying to recover a stalled career. My mom moved in with me and quit her job in order to help watch my kids while I went to the office. She is the reason I was able to find time to write. She is the reason I was able to travel for work and climb back up the corporate ladder. She enabled me to do what I needed to do to give her and my kids the life they deserve. 

9. If you had the power to give everyone in the world one book, what would it be and why?

This is a great and yet difficult question. I really enjoy non-fiction and think there are many books that people need to read depending on their life situation. One book I think is design to help literally any and everyone is Inner Guidance and the Four Spiritual Gifts: How to Maximize Your Intuition and Inspirations to Become More Creative, Successful and Fulfilled, by Howard Wimer.

10. What are you working on now?

Moving back towards my love of witches, I’m working on an urban fantasy in a small town. All she wants to do is leave when she graduates high school, but a mysterious death keeps her from leaving. 

11. Lastly, do you have any questions for your readers?

I would love to know what kinds of challenges they experience in their lives, especially the young adult readers, and how they find personal healing and solutions to those challenges in books.
