Prior to writing, Tiffany Cloud Olson spent the majority of her career in marketing and advertising. Her interest in veteran's issues sparked in 2003 when she worked as a vice-president for a manufacturer of power mobility products, many of which provided mobility to wounded warriors. She married her husband in 2010, following his two tours in Iraq and prior to his tour in Afghanistan with the US Army. It was during his Afghanistan tour that Cloud Olson wrote Sleeping with Dog Tags, initially as personal "therapy" to get through all of the sleepless nights of his deployment. She ultimately published the book in order to help educate more Americans as to what some military families go through during a deployment, as often war's effects are shared by the soldier, but seldom from the perspective of the spouse. Furthermore, her desire is to provide other spouses about to go through the deployment experience the opportunity to laugh out loud, shed some tears and feel less alone as they read about her experience. She hopes to provide military significant others comfort as they read about her insecurities and coping mechanisms during deployment (some coping mechanisms sensible, others completely ridiculous). Sleeping with Dog Tags hit #3 Hot New Release on Amazon.com for military/spy bio & The Best Sellers List, same category, within the first month of its release. On Oct 19th 2012, the book was ranked #45 for all books written by/about women on Amazon.com. Cloud Olson also spent time as a contributing writer to ThoughtfulWomen.org, often about issues impacting the military/military families. In December 2012, Cloud Olson became a member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. She also hosts a weekly television show in her home state and regularly discusses issues relevant to veterans and their families. In May 2014 she and her husband started a company called Warrior Summit Outdoors LLC and are co-executive producers of a television show by the same name. The show will be airing nationwide every Sunday starting January 2016 (www.couragehealsthesoul.com for details). The show is focused on how outdoor activities can help combat vets heal the invisible wounds of war www.couragehealsthesoul.com. Most recently, Tiffany Cloud Olson and her husband were featured in an August 2014 episode of a new show on American Heroes Channel (formerly The Military Channel) called "Saving Heroes"--they were selected due to the tremendous amount of work they have both done for veterans and military families.
