Talia Hibbert is a British author of contemporary and paranormal romance. She is a proponent of writing diverse narratives, with characters that vary in race, ethnicity, body shape, sexual orientation, and life experience.[1][2][3] She is a USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author. [4][5]

Career

During her childhood, Hibbert dealt with negative comments about her dream to be a writer.[6] She used an inheritance from her great-grandmother to finance the beginning of her writing career.[6] She began self-publishing in 2017 and put out her first nine books within one year.[7] Her first traditionally published book, Get a Life, Chloe Brown, was released in 2019 with Avon Romance and is the first book in a family romance trilogy.[1][8][9]

Get a Life, Chloe Brown was featured on the popular morning show Today, in a segment that involved developing recipes based off of scenes within books, and it reached the best sellers lists of both USA Today and The Wall Street Journal.[10][5][4] The audio version of Get a Life, Chloe Brown is read aloud by Adjoa Andoh.[11]

Themes

Multiple of Hibbert's characters fall under the category of Own Voice, meaning they are part of a marginalized group that author also identifies with.[12] Many of her protagonists are black women. In her book A Girl Like Her, the main character Ruth is autistic.[6] The main character in Get a Life, Chloe Brown deals with chronic pain.[1][13]

Hibbert writes stories that include characters with realistic body types.[13]

In Hibbert's book Get a Life, Chloe Brown, she demonstrates the strain that chronic pain can place on both familial and romantic relationships.[14][15] But, as a romance novel, Get a Life, Chloe Brown also shows how someone with chronic pain is deserving and capable of having a loving relationship.[16] The book explores methods of reasserting a sense of control within a life that was once ruled by illness.[17][18]

Hibbert's books reflect a change in the romance genre toward explicit consent during intimate scenes.[19]

In the author's LGBTQ romance Work For It, one of the protagonists deals with finding love even while living with depression.[3]

Personal Life

For an extended amount of time, Hibbert struggled with mystery health issues until a doctor diagnosed her fibromyalgia, a disease known for causing chronic pain.[1][2][15] Hibbert's multiple issues with doctors dismissing her invisible disease inspired the inclusion of the topic of medical discrimination in her novel Get a Life, Chloe Brown.[2]

Hibbert is autistic.[6]
