StoryFinds Author in the Spotlight: Tamera Alexander

Tamera Alexander is a USA Today best-selling author and one of today's most popular writers of inspirational historical fiction. She and her husband live in Nashville, Tennessee, not far from the Southern mansions that serve as the backdrop for six of her award-winning novels.


Her richly drawn characters and thought-provoking plots have earned her devoted readers worldwide, as well as multiple industry awards.

These awards include the Christy Award for Excellence in Christian fiction, the RITA Award for Best Inspirational Romance, the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence, Bookseller’s Best Award, and being listed among Library Journal’s Top Christian Fiction, among others.

Tamera's books have been translated into numerous languages. She's toured Germany and The Netherlands meeting readers, and cherishes those connections.

After living in Colorado for nearly two decades, she and her husband now make their home in Nashville where they enjoy life with their two adult children who live nearby, and Murphy—a rambunctious but oh-so-lovable Australian Terrier.

For Book Clubs

If you're reading one of my books in your book club, I'd love to attend your book club meeting via phone, Skype, or FaceTime, and chat for 20-30 minutes. 

It's best to inquire 4 to 6 weeks in advance of your meeting, if you can. Not that I'm so popular, I promise. But my writing schedule is keeping me fairly buried for now.
But back to you and your book club!  

We can chat about the book you're reading, the history of the setting, behind-the-scenes glimpses as I wrote the novel, or about writing in general. Whatever interests you!

Eleanor Braddock’s Southern Buttermilk Pie:

2 1/2 cups sugar
4 large eggs beaten well
5 ounces buttermilk
2 Tablespoons and 2 teaspoons plain flour
1 stick melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla1 unbaked pie shell*

Mix well by hand in a medium-size bowl (oh, how I love a “one bowl” pie!), then pour the mixture into an unbaked pie shell* (do not prick the pie shell with a fork beforehand). Bake pie at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes until firmly set, then get ready to savor this delicious Southern delicacy…just like Marcus did! I’ve been making this pie for over thirty years. It’s a family favorite for sure, and so easy! The custard is creamy and smooth, while the top bakes to a golden yummy crunch. Enjoy!
