Local author Tiera Newhouse’s novel Trieshay’s Silver Spoon is a self-inspired tale about falling in love again despite the wounds of the past and the uncertainties that lie ahead.
In her maiden novel, Newhouse shares the story of Trieshay, who thoroughly entrenched herself into what she thought was the love of her life. However, when he leaves her, she’s lonely and broken-hearted. Scarred by the experience, it’s difficult for Triesay to trust and love again even when a great, but not perfect, man comes her way. The book illuminates the belief that self-love is based on authenticity and discusses the difficulty of accepting and loving others without knowing one’s true self.
A Wichita native, Newhouse began writing at a young age as a form of self-expression. With a desire to tell her story, she embarked on the journey to becoming an author. The pandemic gave her time to work on her book, and one year later, she released Trieshay’s Silver Spoon.
“ I went through a lot in my life, so I found my writing voice venting to other people and then journaling my experiences,” said Newhouse. “ I hope my story inspires people to follow their dreams, do what they love to do, and be yourself. You have a forever relationship with yourself.”
Although Trieshay’s Silver Spoon is Newhouse’s first published book, she has years of experience as a writer. She obtained her copyright certificate from The Blackford Centre, an accredited online platform that teaches copywriting skills and the ability to find new clients.
Newhouse is currently working on another self-inspired book titled Disorderly Conduct on a Flyer. It discusses the harshness of the justice system and the need for the system to provide better treatment to the people it serves.
