"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.
About the Author
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.

This book while "teen fiction" genre was a thought provoking yet light read.
The title "Animus" is a reference to Carl Jung psychology and the book loosely follows his beliefs in the many stages of human personality and identification. The concept of soul lives and the age of our souls/how many lives we have lived is a theory than many spiritual people (not necessarily religious) feel deeply about and the idea that we keep coming back until we have learnt all of our lessons from ego, to power, to enlightenment and understanding is something that I know I found very close to my own heart.
This book was simply amazing and I would recommend it to anyone - you can make it as deep as you want it to be; treat it as a light fantasy read, or take the deeper philosophy that is on offer. I cannot wait for the next one x
