Biographical and Professional Information

Tasha Alexander writes historical fiction. She credits her parents, both philosophy professors, for encouraging her to read and write. She received a B.A. from Notre Dame in English with a concentration in Medieval Studies. In 2002, while living in New Haven, Connecticut, she started work on her first novel, And Only to Deceive, which was published in 2005 as the first installment of the Lady Emily series. Following a move to Franklin, Tennessee, where Alexander wrote her second novel in a local Starbucks, she eventually relocated to Chicago, where she married British novelist, Andrew Grant (brother of bestselling author, Lee Child), in 2010.
