Ronda Rich Tinker

Author, Speaker, Syndicated Columnist

Rich, a 1983 journalism major, started her career, believe it or not, as a sports writer – an award-winning one at that. She exploded into national prominence a little more than a decade ago with the syndication of her newspaper column and with the publication of the first of several books, What Southern Women Know (That Every Woman Should), which has now topped 30 printings. Her most recent is There’s A Better Day A-Comin’, a personal accounting of dozens of people – famous and non-famous – who triumphed over tribulation and setbacks to push through adversity. In between came What Southern Women Know About Faith, What Southern Women Know About Flirting, My Life in The Pits (a critically acclaimed memoir of her years in NASCAR racing as a reporter and publicist) and the novel, The Town That Came A-Courtin’, which has been optioned for a movie. She has appeared on dozens of television shows including The View, The Other Half, Fox Sports and CNN, as well as in the pages of Redbook, Cosmopolitan, New York Times, Washington Post, Southern Living, and Woman’s Own.
