Tamara Alexander

Sept 9: “Writing Real History in a Cancel Culture World” with Tamara Alexander

Tamera will share practical lessons and inspiring insights she’s learned through her 20-year writing career, including those surrounding her 2020 release, Colors of Truth, a Carnton novel in which her publisher first delayed the release of the novel, then ultimately canceled it after Tamera refused to rewrite real history.

About Tamara Alexander

USA Today bestselling author Tamera Alexander is one of today’s most popular writers of inspirational historical romance. Her novels continue to garner reader loyalty around the world, with her most recent, Colors of Truth, hit both the US Amazon and the Netherlands bestsellers list right out of the gate. Her novels have appeared on best-seller lists—including ECPA Bestsellers, the #1 CBA Bestseller spot for historical fiction, and #1 Amazon Bestsellers in Historical Christian Fiction. Tamera has garnered four Christy Awards and was inducted into the Christy Award Hall of Fame in 2020, which is the highest honor awarded Christian fiction. She’s a two-time recipient of the Carol Award and the RITA Award. Tamera seeks to draw closer to Christ through her writing and is thrilled when readers share that, through reading one of her novels, they’ve taken steps closer to Him as well. Tamera lives in Nashville, Tennessee with her husband, not far from the Southern mansions that serve as the backdrop for many of her critically-acclaimed novels.
