Author Tanika Dillard is a natural leader, motivational speaker, and trusted counsel to her peers.

Crafting pitch perfect melodies and poetry are Tanika’s ways to articulate the emotions in her heart. Her love for writing began as an adolescent, often writing about love, family, and faith in God.

A passionate revolution for writing was birthed in 2009 after three recurrent pregnancy losses. Tanika needed an effective avenue to channel her grief and unwavering desire to have a family. Eloquently flowing words were crafted from the life-changing pain in her blog, The Journey of Love and Life.

Tanika’s passion for breaking the silence of pregnancy loss positioned her as founding member and Facilitator for Share Upstate Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support Group. Her efforts to honor the lives of her children and increase awareness on the taboo subject have uniquely connected her with medical professionals and grieving families across the globe.

In August 2014, Tanika embarked upon a new phase in the literary revolution by releasing Building A Family Breaks My Heart; a best selling novel inspired by her blog writings. Building A Family Breaks My Heart is a magnificent work of heart, capturing the essence of despair from loss and the beauty of dreams fulfilled. The novel is sure to capture and connect the hearts of those who have experienced pregnancy loss, infertility, or supporters of those who have.

Tanika’s most prestigious titles are wife and mother. Tanika and husband Christopher reside in SC with their two sons.
