Even though she experimented with poetry and short stories, the people in Tamera’s life encouraged her to pursue a practical career. A former student at Greater Atlanta Christian School, she got her business administration degree from Harding University.
The author joined Data Communications Corporation (Memphis, Tennessee) and quickly rose through the ranks. She had a team of dozens under her. She also worked with major clients, including Turner Broadcasting Systems.
But the birth of her first child changed things. She joined her husband in Abilene, Texas, when an employment opportunity came his way. Later on, they migrated to Greeley in Colorado. By that point, the author had a second child.
Publishing was still a distant dream for Tamera. She blames her mother-in-law for compelling her to give fiction a shot. The woman gave Tamera ‘Love Comes Softly’ by Janette Oke.
Rather than reading it, the author placed the book on a shelf and forgot about it. Not long after, Tamera’s mother-in-law died. The cause of death was a brain aneurysm. She was 58 at the time.
When Tamera re-discovered ‘Love Comes Softly’ a few months later, she sat down and read it. Before long, the author was devouring every Christian novel she could find. She couldn’t get enough of the genre.
Like many of her peers in publishing, her obsession with reading sparked an interest in writing. She wrote her first manuscript and submitted it. But after reviewing it, Bethany House Publishers rejected the book.
More rejections followed. But rather than surrendering to discouragement, the author started planning. Tamera used the analytical thinking her business career had instilled in her to study successful novels.
She wanted to decipher the secret behind their success. The next time the author reached out to Bethany House, they published her second manuscript. The book became a bestseller.
Subsequent releases from the author continued to make appearances on the Christian Booksellers Association CBA list, cementing Tamera’s confidence in her craft.
The questions the author has about her faith tend to inspire the historical fiction she pens. She also endeavors to explore current issues and controversies through a historical lens.
Her goal is to immerse her readers in distant periods and settings filled with engaging characters that can provide insight into the human condition.

Best Tamera Alexa Books
The author uses her stories to bring readers closer to Christ. Tamera’s best books include:
Rekindled: Kathryn was so naïve. When she made her vows a decade ago, she thought she understood what they meant. But she was wrong. Over the years, Kathryn has done her part. She has stayed true to her husband.
But their marriage has disappointed her. It wasn’t quite what she wanted. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have time to reflect. Her husband is gone. Kathryn doesn’t know what to think.
She waited for him to return on that stormy winter night. He never did. Now, she has to assume the worst. If he’s dead, she must keep the ranch going. But she keeps running into obstacles at every turn.
And the more she learns about her husband’s past, the more regret Kathryn feels. She could have done better. She could have loved him for who he was rather than what she wanted him to become. But there’s no point in looking back. The past is gone. Kathryn must forge a new path to the future.
From A Distance: Elizabeth got more than she bargained for when she went to Colorado. The photographer was sent to capture the majesty of the mountains in Timber Ridge’s vicinity.
But she also hoped that Colorado’s hot springs would alleviate her ailment. The last thing she expected was for Daniel to enter her life. The man was doing everything he could to escape his confederate past. He took great pleasure in the solitude Colorado offered.
Elizabeth wasn’t his problem, not at first. Their paths crossed when the photographer became an essential piece in a murder that needed solving. Now, Daniel must repay a debt. But doing so could bring his secrets to the surface.
