New York Times best selling author Andra Watkins lives in Charleston, South Carolina.
A non-practicing CPA, she has a degree in accounting from Francis Marion University.
She’s still mad at her mother for refusing to let her major in musical theater. Her mom was convinced she’d end up starring in porn films.
Hard to Die is Andra’s latest novel. It’s an afterlife story of Theodosia Burr Alston, tragic daughter of Aaron Burr and subject of the song “Dear Theodosia” from the Tony-award-winning smash Hamilton: An American Musical. Read more about it HERE.
She’s the author of four books and counting. Her acclaimed first novel To Live Forever: An Afterlife Journey of Meriwether Lewis was published by Word Hermit Press on March 1, 2014. Not Without My Father: One Woman’s 444-Mile Walk of the Natchez Trace is a memoir about her dysfunctional family adventure; it is a National Book Award nominee and a New York Times best seller. Natchez Trace: Tracks in Time is a book of photography, shot during her 15-mile daily hikes on her 444-mile Natchez Trace walk.
