About the Author

B. J. Tiernan

B.J. Tiernan is a teacher. It’s her calling. She’s been at it since graduating from the University of Florida with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education in 1972. Whether it is in the classroom or through her writing, it is what she loves to do. Throughout the years, Tiernan has given numerous seminars, inspirational workshops and classes to promote self-growth and writing skills. For the past fifteen years, she has been putting her certification in Social Sciences to work teaching World History and Ancient Cultures to sixth graders. She has also taught several creative writing classes at Community Schools in Broward County, Florida. Tiernan writes contemporary fiction that causes the reader to think, to ponder, to question. Through the back door of fiction, she addresses questions about living, dying and the age-old task of overcoming our dark side. One of her biggest joys has been to design and teach a course for adults at Community School, where individuals can shine a light on their own memories and experiences and organize them into stories. One of her student’s short stories was published in Chicken Soup for the Soul–Family Matters. It was a proud moment. Tiernan dedicates Standing on a Whale to all of the students who have passed through her classes and workshops hungry to learn and to write.
