Short Bio:
Tamera Alexander is a USA Today bestselling novelist and one of today's most beloved authors of Christian historical romance. Her works have been awarded and nominated for numerous industry-leading honors, among them the Christy Award, the RITA Award, the Carol Award, Library Journal's top honors, and have earned the distinction of Publisher's Weekly Starred Reviews. Her deeply drawn characters and thought-provoking plots have earned her devoted readers worldwide.

Tamera and her husband reside in Nashville, Tennessee, where they live a short distance from Nashville's Belmont Mansion and Belle Meade Plantation , the setting of Tamera’s #1 CBA bestselling Southern series. Her upcoming series, the Carnton Novels , launches in fall 2017 with Christmas at Carnton  (October 3, 2017), a Christmas story, which is set at Franklin, Tennessee's historic Carnton Plantation.


Long Bio:
Tamera Alexander is a USA Today bestselling author of Rekindled, Revealed and Remembered, the critically acclaimed Fountain Creek Chronicles historical series. Her second historical series, Timber Ridge Reflections (From a Distance, Beyond This Moment, and Within My Heart) continue her signature style of deeply drawn characters, thought-provoking plots, and poignant prose which has earned her devoted readers worldwide—and multiple industry awards. Her critically-acclaimed Southern Mansion novels—the Belmont Mansion series and the Belle Meade Plantation series —are continuing that beloved tradition.

Her books have twice garnered both the Christy Award for Excellence in Christian Fiction (she's a seven-time finalist) and the RITA Award for Best Inspirational Romance (she's a five-time finalist). Her novels have won the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence, the Golden Quill Award, the HOLT Medallion, the Bookseller’s Best Award, the National Reader's Choice Award, and Library Journal’s Top Christian Fiction, among others. Tamera's books have been translated into Dutch, German, Polish, Romanian, Slovak, and Portuguese. 

After living in Colorado for over seventeen years, Tamera returned to her Southern roots. She and her husband make their home in Nashville, Tennessee, along with a rambunctious but oh-so-lovable Australian Terrier named Murphy.
