"The power of Tiffany FitzHenry's work first and foremost lies in the superb concept she has created. The Oldest Soul: Animus sits on the border of young adult and adult fiction for me, as Eve's youthful stance on life is interspersed with her Zodiac soul, which tells of the many lives lived before her current body. I really enjoyed the idea that the soul transcends race, gender, or any other physical factor, and her relationship with Roman really puts the idea of soul mates under a new kind of microscope. Brilliantly crafted, well written, and compelling, The Oldest Soul: Animus is a true page turner that will satisfy audiences of romantic fiction and sci-fi alike. I would recommend it to readers seeking something totally original, detailed, and deep."

"The Oldest Soul - Animus, the first in a series from The Oldest Soul Trilogy by Tiffany FitzHenry is a captivating story that espouses the belief that human souls do exist, that we are reincarnated a number of times, and are naturally drawn to our past lovers and repelled by our past enemies. The story unfolds in an obscure little town in North Dakota and the author wastes no time in setting the stage for the biggest conflict that is about to happen. As Eve O'Cleirich slowly finds out about her past lives and her real self, a Nobel-prize winning scientist discovers a way to carbon date human souls. The revelation that Eve is the oldest soul in the world carries with it a lot of responsibilities as her brother is plotting something that will change the world as we know it. The Oldest Soul is certainly thought provoking and Tiffany FitzHenry is an author to watch out for."

"Tiffany FitzHenry begins The Oldest Soul Trilogy with the alarming story of The Oldest Soul - Animus. The characters come to life on the pages. I love the double meanings of the names she gives her characters; they are eloquent, yet profound. Written from the point of view of the heroine, FitzHenry allows the reader to dwell within her character's soul and mind, knowing her thoughts, feelings and imaginings. The main character is strong, brave, yet vulnerable. Her vulnerability allows her to blossom and grow dynamically as the story progresses. The story plot develops with ease and intrigue, not giving away too much too soon. The Oldest Soul - Animus is captivating and intelligently written, enveloped with vivid and figurative descriptions. However, the cliffhanger ending stabs your heart, leaving a gaping wound that needs to be satisfied by the knowledge of what happens next."

About the Author
Tiffany has said that the story of The Oldest Soul had been "making its presence known" for several years.
Eve first sprang into her mind--like a bucket of cold water in the face--while on a walk in 2011, she promptly went home and wrote the first 4 pages (which have remained unchanged since). But she filed Eve's one-of-a-kind journey away in her mind when work on other projects beckoned.
"I've been a writer of all forms of stories since I was around seventeen and the potential success of one of my TV pilots took me further from Eve's story, but what I didn't realize was that I was always amassing inspiration for what would one day become The Oldest Soul. Everything in my world somehow always circled back to Eve."
In the spring and summer of 2015, in a matter of months, she breathed life into ANIMUS, or rather, it breathed life into her ... "The story is a force of nature--and seemed to move through me like an incredible breath of life from someplace else."
Tiffany has always said that stories "know what they want to be." And that as a writer she feels it's her job to "show up and get out of the way." Never has that felt so true than when Eve is telling her story.
"Honestly ... I just write it down."
"Elaborate worlds infused with real human emotions and strong characters with thought provoking stories are what fills my soul." Tiffany has spent the past few years creating such worlds in the form of original feature screenplays and T.V pilots as a screenwriter represented by David Boxerbaum at Paradigm Talent Agency. The Oldest Soul - ANIMUS is her debut novel.
