Nadria Tucker was born in Atmore, Alabama and grew up living the small town Southern life, which had a great influence on her work. She received an English degree from Auburn University before getting her master's in creative writing at UAB. Her work has appeared in several literary magazines including Fiction 365, New Southerner and THE2NDHAND. Her latest novel is Darwin, Singer, a dystopian young adult tale--Darwin is a singer, and music is illegal.

My newest feature, The Madam’s Daughter is up and available to read over at The Black List.


In post-Civil War Alabama, a white Southern belle uncovers the truth about the black madam who raised her, and who may actually be her mother. Black List members, click here to read The Madam’s Daughter.

“What’s the biggest problem facing teenagers today? Ourselves. We’re a generation of lazy underachievers who need to learn that hard work pays off. What’s your town known for? Cow manure! Hold for laughs... Actually Irondale is the setting of Fannie Flagg’s famous novel Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café. Why’d you enter the Junior Miss Birmingham pageant? To win... to go to State... then Nationals... maybe get the hell out of Alabama.”
Nadria Tucker, The Heaviest Corner on Earth

“He never had nothing of his own before, except the kid, and he can’t claim but half the credit, there, maybe less. T.J.’s blond like his mamma, and stubborn, too. Won’t let nobody hold him except her. Cries every time his daddy picks him up. Every time he looks in those wet blue eyes, he nearly loses it. His own son hates him. Can’t blame the kid for having an opinion.”

“Oh it was gorgeousness and gorgeosity made flesh. The trombones crunched redgold under my bed, and behind my gulliver the trumpets three-wise silverflamed, and there by the door the timps rolling through my guts and out again crunched like candy thunder. Oh, it was wonder of wonders. And then, a bird of like rarest spun heavenmetal, or like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now, came the violin solo above all the other strings, and those strings were like a cage of silk round my bed. Then flute and oboe bored, like worms of like platinum, into the thick thick toffee gold and silver. I was in such bliss, my brothers.”
Anthony Burgess, A Clockwork Orange

“Now that I am dead, I know everything.”
Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad

“One by one they were all becoming shades. Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age.”

Nadria Tucker Oh Threats looks good. I love a good mystery--and the psychological themes, too...


Michael Forrester Amelia Gray.


Nadria Tucker Who is Threats by? The Flame Alphabet looks interesting for sure.


Michael Forrester check out Threats and The Flame Alphabet as considerations for next months book club...possibilities!
