Tasha Alexander

Tasha Alexander is the author of the New York Times bestselling Lady Emily mystery series.

The daughter of two philosophy professors, she studied English Literature and Medieval History at the University of Notre Dame. She and her husband, novelist Andrew Grant, live on a ranch in southeastern Wyoming.

Alexander's new novel, Secrets of the Nile, is the 16th Lady Emily mystery.

Recently I asked the author about what she was reading. Her reply:
I recently finished Ann Mah’s phenomenal Jacqueline in Paris, a meticulously researched novel that tells the story of the year Jacqueline Bouvier spent in Paris as a college student. Mah brings post-war Paris to life, contrasting its bullet-riddled buildings and grimy façades with the city’s elegant beauty. An endlessly talented writer, she immerses the reader in Jacqueline’s world. Student cafés, politics, and the struggles of those who suffered during the war draw you in, while Mah’s expertly drawn and fully realized characters make you want to stay with them long after you’ve closed the book.
